Gluten Free Loaded Cauliflower Soup

I’m not a gluten free eater.  I am fortunate to be able to have any of my meals with a healthy dish of gluten any time I want.  In fact, for the longest time, I turned my nose up at pretty much anything labeled gluten free convinced that it just couldn’t taste good.  Then, a friend of mine needed to go gluten free and I found myself exploring the world of gluten free cooking a little more so that I could continue to have her over for dinner without serving broccoli and water.  This loaded cauliflower soup is gluten free but you’d never know if I didn’t put it in the title.

Baked potato soup is a huge favorite of mine.  Of course, with my healthier eating goal, it isn’t always the wisest choice.  So, I decided to make it over using cauliflower and then got all crazy and made it gluten free too.  The soup is still really creamy thanks to an immersion blender {this one is my favorite} making easy work for blending the cauliflower.  Even though it is meant to be healthy, still top this soup with all the delicious things like cheese, bacon and green onions though.

I’ve made this soup twice now and absolutely love it!  The addition of the pickled jalapeno gives it just a little bit of heat.  You can easily replace it with some chopped green onion if you don’t like jalapenos though.
