Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, add the olive oil, onions, celery and pasilla pepper, sautéing until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add in the turkey, garlic, salt and pepper, breaking up the turkey as it browns, until the turkey is fully cooked, about 7 minutes. Add the spinach, and stir until wilted.
  3. Pour in the chicken stock, cauliflower, and potato, and bring the mixture up to a boil.
  4. Once boiling , add the cream cheese and stir until it is melted into the soup. I used a whisk to help the process. Reduce heat to a simmer, and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  5. Divide among four bowls, and top with sliced green onions.
