One of my favorite soups ever is baked potato soup. However, it’s not Keto friendly and it’s not gluten free. So I don’t eat it anymore. Or so I thought! This weekend, I made a Keto soup that tasted VERY similar to baked potato soup. I’ve said before that the Keto Chorizo Chicken Soup Recipe was my favorite Keto soup. Now, I’m not so sure! This creamy cauliflower andouille soup is Keto approved AND it tastes very much like my old favorite potato soup recipe! Total win-win!

Creamy Cauliflower Andouille Soup
Super delicious recipe for a creamy cauliflower andouille soup that tastes very similar to baked potato soup!
- 13.5 Ounce Andouille Smoked Sausage
- 4 Slices Thick Cut Bacon chopped
- 1 Medium Head of Cauliflower cut into pieces
- 1 Small Onion chopped
- 6 Cups Chicken Broth
- 2 Cups Water
- 1 1/2 Cup Baby Leaf Spinach
- 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes to taste
Slice the andouille sausage into halves. Place in a frying pan and cook (or heat up, if fully cooked) until done. Remove from pan.
Add the chopped bacon in the pan. Fry until it is just about done and then add the onion and finish frying the bacon.
Cut the head of cauliflower into small and large pieces. Place in a large stock pot with the cooked sausage, bacon, and onions.
Next add the chicken broth and water to the stock pot. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the temperature and cover. Simmer for about 10-12 minutes.
Add the baby spinach to the pot and simmer for about another 2 minutes or so. Next add the heavy whipping cream, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Stir well to completely mix. Simmer for about another 2 minutes.
Serve with a little shredded cheddar cheese on top (or don't...it's good without it)!!

You guys!!!! I cannot tell you how good this soup is! It smelled amazing while I was cooking it. Not once did I ever think that it would remind me of baked potato soup, but it totally does! If you’re thinking, “eww…cooked cauliflower smells so gross. I don’t think I can eat this”….stop thinking that! It is so good!

Creamy Cauliflower Andouille Soup Tips
I will definitely be making this soup again. Next time I plan on doing the following things:
- Adding MORE spinach
- Changing up the type of meat in the soup
- Adding a little bit of garlic powder
Tips aside, the soup, as is, was so good and tasted great reheated the next day. Be aware that it will separate some in the fridge. Simply stir and it will be just fine!
As always, be sure to figure out your macros with the specific ingredients that you use. I’m sure there are different brands of andouille sausage at the store. The nutritional information may not be the same for them both. With the ingredients I used, these are the macros:

If you have any questions about the Keto diet, please don’t hesitate to ask. What I would hate for you to do is listen to all that nonsense and inaccurate information that Jillian Michaels is spewing about Keto. She has no clue what she is talking about.
