White-on-White Idaho Potato Cauliflower Soup


March 2016 NAPS Come & Get It - potatoes feature pic 1(NAPS)—If you’re like most people, you’re missing out on an important nutrient—but there’s a simple and simply delicious way to overcome that deficit.

The problem is lack of potassium. A potassium-rich diet has been linked, in several studies, to reduced risk for heart disease and stroke—the two leading causes of death among adults in the U.S. Yet an estimated 97 percent of adults are falling short of the recommended intake.

Fortunately, one of the best sources of potassium is a tasty Idaho® potato. It contains nearly twice the amount of potassium per serving as a banana—and provides roughly one-quarter of your average daily recommended amount of potassium.

One great way to increase your potassium intake is with this White-on-White Idaho Potato Cauliflower Soup. This satisfying meal is easy to make and great for busy and blustery nights:


White-on-White Idaho  Potato Cauliflower Soup

1 cup finely chopped onion

2 medium Idaho potatoes (about 1 pound total), peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes

32-ounce carton low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth

1 teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon dried rosemary

2 cups cauliflower florets

Coarsely ground black pepper

1­–2   tablespoons chopped fresh basil

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil


Heat a large saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 3–4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft. Add the potatoes, broth, garlic powder and rosemary; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the cauliflower and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the cauliflower is soft. Serve as is or puree with an immersion blender before serving. Sprinkle with pepper and basil; drizzle oil evenly over all.
