  1. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Place bacon on sheet in single layer and bake according to package instructions. Allow to cool, and crumble or cut into small pieces.
  2. In a large soup pot, melt butter. Add in flour and stir, allow to cook for two minutes.
  3. Meanwhile in small skillet, cook garlic and onion in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Slowly add milk, chicken broth, and water into flour mixture, stirring constantly.
  5. Add 1/2 of the potatoes and riced cauliflower into soup. Using an immersion blender, blend the potatoes and cauliflower until smooth.
