Smoked Sausage & Cauliflower Cheddar Soup - Keto and Low Carb
Need a quick and easy soup to warm you up? This soup is super hearty and has great flavor from the smoked sausage. Cheese and heavy cream make it rich and creamy!
- 1 medium head of cauliflower chopped into florets
- 12 ounces of uncured smoked sausage cut into small bites
- 3 cups chicken stock see my recipe here
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- fresh parsley for garnish
- salt and pepper to taste
In a medium pot, add in the butter and smoked sausage, sauté for a few minutes over medium heat, until the sausage starts to brown. Remove and set aside.
Add in the onion and sauté for about 2 minutes, then add in the garlic and sauté for about 20 seconds, careful not to burn it!
Pour in the chicken stock and cauliflower, salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on, or until tender.
Using an immersion blender, puree the cauliflower. If you don't have an immersion blender, you can puree in a food processor in batches, then return to the pot. Over medium low heat, add the sausage back in, along with the cheddar cheese and heavy cream.
Cook for another 7-10 minutes and serve with shredded cheddar cheese and a garnish of fresh parsley! Store leftovers in the fridge for a few days or freezer.
