I have been talking about this soup on Twitter and Instagram a lot and finally found the time to blog about it!! I am a huge soup fan, I love to make a big ole pot and eat on it for a few days. I definitely don’t get tired of eating the same thing for a few days as long as it’s super yummy.
I love potato soup but the calories, oh my! I actually got this recipe from a friend and the whole pot is only ~550 calories. You read that right, the whole pot of soup is ~550 calories. I can definitely do that!!
So what’s in it? Let’s talk about it!!
Four things! A bag of frozen cauliflower (or a head of fresh, chopped), a bag of Idahoan Four Cheese Potato Flakes, some Onion Powder, and some Voodoo Chicken (Caldo de Pollo, fund in the Mexican Aisle at Walmart). BOOM! Done!
This soup is so easy to make and it is so rich and creamy that you won’t believe it’s made out of cauliflower and that there are so few calories in it.
- 1-10oz bag Cauliflower frozen
- 1 pkg Idahoan Four Cheese flavored instant potatoes
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 2 tbsp Voodoo Chicken heaping
- Boil cauliflower in just enough water to cover them by an inch in the pot.
- Bring cauliflower to a boil and boil until tender.
- Add potatoes, onion powder, and voodoo chicken and stir until potatoes are dissolved.
- Blend with an immersion mixer (or hand mixer) until as smooth as you want it. Soup will be THICK so you can add water at this point if you want.
Do you love potato soup? Have you tried it with cauliflower?

This looks so delicious and healthy! I have never thought to add cauliflower to potato soup! So perfect!
I’m with you! I adore potato soup but not the calories! What a fantastic idea!
Donella Crigger says
What a clever idea! I could eat potato soup any day, but you’re right…it’s so full of calories (especially the way I make it). I’ll have to try this lightened up version. It looks delicious!

Cauliflower is a great low-carb alternative to potatoes.

Soup is my FAVORITE! I’m so glad I’m not the only person who makes huge batches of soup so I can eat it throughout a week. Can’t wait to try this recipe <3

This sounds amazing. Cauliflower purees as replacement for potatoes is one of my favorite substitutes. I will be trying this soup very soon!

Cauliflower is magical, isn’t it? I’ve used it to replace potatoes in several recipes, and it works great! I’m cracking up at chicken buillon being “voodoo chicken”.

Thank you for sharing this. I love cauliflower soup. I am going to have to try it with potatoes soon.
I have never tried to replace potatoes with cauliflower–what a great idea. I love that there are so few calories in that entire pot!!!!!

Thank you Ricci for sharing this wonderful recipe! I am only recently beginning to realize the amazing things you can substitute cauliflower with! Now I have your recipe to add to that list! :)
This looks delicious and it is amazing this it took down a lot of those calories! Way to make it work!

I agree, potato-based soups are lovely but so heavy and laden with calories. I love cauliflower but have never had it blended in a soup like that. Good recipe — especially that it has so few calories.
I am not big on soups but I do love me some tomato soup only, now I am starting to reconsider that. This looks so delicious and so easy to make. Thanks for the recipe
oh my goodness, yes!! I have been trying to figure out how to do this without all of the calories, and you have solved my problem!!! Hurray!

This is such a great idea! I do love potato soup, but you’re right the calories in most of them are insane. thanks for the recipe!
Ron Leyba says

I have never heard of this before! That is such a cool recipe. Can’t believe it’s cauliflower!

Awesome! I used to do the same thing to make “mashed potatoes”. It’s amazing all the things that cauliflower can emulate.
