Cold day, warm feel-good soup…

Hi all! I hope you had a great holiday. I am sorry it has been awhile since I’ve posted, but I’ve had a lot going on lately, as we all have with family and holidays and such.  It’s been a great break and I’ve loved spending time with my family and kids, but I have to admit, I am ready for everyone to get back on schedule, including myself. Hallelujah for school on Monday!

So my lovely husband’s birthday is on Monday, so I wanted to make him a nice warm soup today that I thought he would like for lunch.  I know y’all are going to get sick of me saying this, but it really was super easy to make (took maybe 10 minutes) and it was so yummy, if I do say so myself. The whole family loved it. This is definitely going to be a new staple of ours. So much so that I’m going to make more tomorrow.  When I find something I like, I’m not afraid to make it over, and over, and over again!

Here is what you need:

  • 5 garlic cloves (I used TJ’s pre-pealed)
  • 1 pack pre-cut onion (or 1 medium onion chopped)
  • 2 tbsp ghee (or butter)
  • 2 12 oz. bags of cauliflower (or 1 large or 2 small heads)
  • 2-3 cups bone broth or organic chicken broth (depending on desired thickness)
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (I used Trader Joe’s light)
  • 1 tsp celtic salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper (it was a little spicy for the kids but they still liked it)
  • Fresh chives and crispy bacon for garnish
Start by heating up a large pan and add the ghee (or butter).  Once it’s melted, add the garlic and onions and cook until transparent.  While that is cooking…

Microwave each bag (separately) of cauliflower for 2 1/2 minutes. I  know, I know, I should have steamed it instead of zapping it, but we really were short on time today.  If you have time, steam it. It doesn’t take that much longer and you really will save many nutrients.  You can actually just add the broth and cauliflower, bring it to a boil and then turn down the stove and let it cook until the cauliflower is done.

Now, add in the cauliflower into the pot (if you microwaved it) with the onions and garlic.  Then add in the rest of the ingredients and blend with your immersion blender or pour into any other blender. Garnish with some bacon, chives, and even some cheese (if you eat dairy) and enjoy!

He’s always happy to share…

Well, to a point. I don’t think he thought it was quite as funny as she did when she stole his lunch…

Mmm, it just feels good going down.

landriav - What a good idea Amber! But yes, definitely try with garlic next time . Something about that roasted garlic gives it a little extra kick that is just so good!! Thanks for your comment!! Glad it turned out even without the garlic!

Amber - I started to make this and realized I didn’t have garlic. Bummer! So I roasted some red bell peppers I had on hand and it was delicious! Can’t wait to make it again.. Next time with garlic!

landriav - You guys crack me up. Thanks for your comment Lisa! :)
