Smoked Bacon Cauliflower Chowder

This Smoked Bacon Cauliflower Chowder is warm, hearty and yummy. It’s a perfect healthy soup for anyone who is trying to cut down on carbs or for someone who wants a healthy soup that doesn’t lack flavor. My family doesn’t really like the taste of cauliflower. I had to cook the cauliflower with the bacon so the cauliflower would take on the taste of the smoked bacon and it worked! This is such an easy soup. It only took 30 minutes. That is a win already!
