Tips for making this Loaded Baked Potato Soup recipe:

  • Make sure you don’t brown the garlic when sauteeing or it will taste bitter.
  • Use full-fat coconut milk to make this potato cauliflower soup recipe dairy-free without compromising on the creaminess.
  • Select a clean, firm, compact head of cauliflower. It should be white or creamy-white. Avoid heads that are soft, have brown coloring or small dark spots on the curds.
  • I recommend you make this recipe with a low-sodium broth at its base. This allows you to adjust the seasoning at the end of cooking, while still keeping the sodium levels in check.
