Cauliflower Soup

 This weekend was a rainy one. From a really heavy downpour from Saturday night into Monday morning, and the perfect way to keep warm was this Cauliflower soup. It has a little bit of kick thanks to the Sriracha but if that is not your style simply half it or omit all together. A 1/4 tsp of chili or taco powder might be a good substitute as well. For the Vegetarians simply omit the bacon. Hope you enjoy! 

 

 Cauliflower Soup

Ingredients: 2 tablespoons unsalted butter ~ 1 Tsp minced Garlic (2 cloves) ~ 1 yellow onion, diced ~ 2 stalks celery, diced ~ 1/4 cup Almond Flour (all-purpose flour, whole wheat or soy flour)  ~ 4 cups chicken broth ~ 1 cup Unsweetened Almond milk (or milk) ~ 16 oz bag frozen cauliflower or (head of cauliflower, roughly chopped) ~ 1 bay leaf ~ Salt and pepper to taste ~ 4 slices bacon, diced ~ 1 Tsp Sriracha (Optional) ~ 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions: In a stockpot or Dutch oven melt the butter over medium, high heat adding in the onion, celery and garlic until tender.

Cauliflower Soup

Approximately 3-4 minutes then add in the flour until slightly browned. Whisk in the chicken broth and Almond milk whisking constantly until slightly thick about 4-5 minutes. Stir in the cauliflower and bay leaf and bring to a boil.

Cauliflower Soup

Reduce heat and simmer until cauliflower is fork tender approximately 15-20 minutes or until desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon in the Sriracha and stir until incorporated.

Heat bacon in a skillet (or you can use the prepackaged microwave bacon to save time) until golden brown and pat dry with a paper towel. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Crumble and garnish your soup with the bacon and the parsley. Serve.

  27. i have been wondering lately about trying a cauliflower soup. i have a recipe for crockpot potato soup that i looooove, but it is really high in carbs and fat. i’ve been on the lookout for some type of replacement options that will keep all (or at least most) of the flavor, but will cut out most of the stuff that makes me feel guilty when i eat it. i definitely want to give this recipe a try!

  31. Yum! I can totally make this Whole 30 compliant with coconut milk! Thanks for sharing this delicious + healthy recipe.

  32. This sounds amazing! I will be trying this for sure! (Also sharing it on one of my weekly DIYs to Try posts, if that’s okay. 🙂

  33. Pinned it! It looks SO good. Also, I’m jealous of your rain…it’s still snowing here!
