I have always wondered if I can incorporate cauliflower into chowder and wanted to try it but I wasn’t sure if it’ll work or even taste good. Luckily, I found this yummy recipe by Anna’s Kitchen on YouTube. It only requires a few simple ingredients some are already available in my kitchen and some I can easily purchase in the grocery. Plus, this dish is also low-carb so I can eat a lot of it guilt-free.



  • 4 slices of bacon, diced or ¼ cup of real bacon bits
  • 2 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • ¼ cup of cream cheese
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of heavy or pure cream
  • 1 head of cauliflower, roughly chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp of chopped fresh parsley leaves, optional


Step 1

If you’re using sliced bacon, then heat up a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the bacon for about 6 to 8 minutes or until brown and crispy. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain off excess grease, then set it aside. Place a large pot or Dutch oven on a stove over medium heat, then melt the butter before adding the garlic, onion, carrots, and celery, and give them a good toss. Let them cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until tender while stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Next, gradually pour the chicken broth, cream, and cream cheese, then whisk them together constantly, and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the cream cheese has melted into the mixture and the consistency has slightly thickened. Add the cauliflower chopped into small bite-sized pieces, then add the bay leaf as well, and bring them to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for about 12 to 15 minutes or until the cauliflowers are tender, then season it with salt and pepper to taste, and you’re done. If the chowder is not thick enough, you can use an immersion blender to puree some of the cauliflowers. Serve with crispy bacon bits and freshly chopped parsley on top, then more salt and pepper to taste if desired. Enjoy!
