    Things To Grab

    • Blender
    • Whisk
    • Small bowl
    • 5-qt. Dutch oven
    • Wooden spoon or silicone spatula
    • Slotted spoon
    • Cutting board
    • Sharp knife


    1. Place cauliflower and cream alternative in a blender. Cover and blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds or until smooth; set aside.

    2. Whisk together water and bouillon paste in a small bowl; set aside.

    3. Melt 1 Tbsp. vegan butter in a 5-qt. Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add sausage; cook and stir for 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp and golden. Add shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until opaque (145 degrees). Remove sausage and shrimp from Dutch oven; set aside. Scrape out or rinse Dutch oven to remove any brown bits in bottom.

    4. Melt 2 Tbsp. vegan butter in Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add potatoes, onions, celery and carrots. Cover and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until carrots are fork-tender, stirring occasionally.

    5. Add remaining 4 Tbsp. vegan butter to vegetables in Dutch oven. Add flour and 2 tsp. seasoning; cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in cauliflower cream, mixture, 1½ cups prepared water-bouillon mixture and wine. Return to heat. Simmer, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 17 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.

    6. Add salmon and enough of the remaining ½ cup water-bullion mixture for desired consistency. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until salmon flakes easily with a fork (145 degrees). Stir in sausage and shrimp. Garnish with additional seasoning and chives, if desired.
