  • 2 cups cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 12 cups vegetable stock (depending how thin or thick you want the soup)
  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts (I bought canned artichoke hearts)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 12 cup shredded chicken, to garnish (I shredded a rotisserie chicken to make it easy)
  • 1/2 cup cooked bacon, roughly chopped, to garnish
  • olive oil, to garnish
  • hot sauce, to garnish


  1. Steam 2 cups of cauliflower florets until soft.
  2. Place cauliflower in a Blendtec along with vegetable stock and puree until smooth using the soup button. If you do not have a Blendtec, use a food processor or blender.
  3. Add artichoke hearts, basil, and and a bit of salt and pepper. Puree once more to incorporate all ingredients.
  4. Cook bacon to preference then roughly chop it. I shredded a rotisserie chicken to make it easier.
  5. Place soup in a bowl, top with shredded chicken and bacon and add a few drops of olive oil and hot sauce on top of the soup.
  6. I found the best way to eat it was to mix it all up in a bowl mash. Wonderful.
