This is one of my favorite soups. I absolutely love Brie cheese because it's so creamy, and the flavor with cauliflower and bacon...WOW! This recipe came from LHJ or BH&G.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 slices bacon
  • 2 medium onions, chopped (2 3/4 cups)

  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted

  1. Fry bacon in a large pot until browned but not crisp.
  2. Drain on paper towels, then coarsely chop.
  3. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of drippings from the pot.
  4. Add onions and saute until translucent, about 7 minutes.
  5. Stir in cauliflower, broth, and celery soup.

Wow. Just wow. This was absolutely delicious and loved by everyone at the table. I also used my own chicken stock, and left out the red peppers, but used garden parsley for garnish. Thanks so much for posting!
