Low carb loaded potato soup

We love soup at our house and I try to experiment with a new recipe each week.  I think this one is going to be an easy go to one for us.

It is really simple.

1 head cauliflower
2 left over baked potatoes, peeled and chopped (if you don't have any you could microwave a couple or bake a couple and let them cool)
1.5 cups both or stock, I used homemade chicken broth
1.5 cups milk, I used 2% but any kind would work
1/2 cup sour cream
salt, pepper
1 Tablespoon dried basil

For toppings:
Grated sharp cheddar cheese
green onions, chopped
bacon, cooked and chopped (I used 5 slices but we really like bacon so you could use less) or try turkey bacon

Steam the cauliflower until it is tender.  Add that to a pot with the potatoes, broth and milk.  Let it come to a simmer then use and immersion blender to blend it all up.  Add the sour cream and simmer until it is all warm again. Maybe 15 minutes.  Add in basil and season with salt and pepper.

Ladle into bowls and add the toppings, as much as you would like.

That's it.  Pretty simple, right?

Hope you like it.
