Weight Loss Blog – Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

adridster Uncategorized Comments Off

Greetings! Here’s a healthy, low carb soup recipe you’re sure to love, courtesy of the Peak Health Team: 4 cups diced cauliflower (about one large head), 3/4 cup diced onion, 3/4 cup diced celery, 1 diced carrot, 3 TBL butter, 4 cups chicken bouillon (Knorres) or canned broth, 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup heavy cream. Salt/pepper, 3 slices cooked and diced bacon, 1 diced green onion.
Directions:
Melt butter and saute onions and celery; combine with chicken broth, cauliflower and carrots and simmer until tender. Use immersion blender (or stand blender) pulse till desired smoothness then return to pot. Add cream and cheese a little at a time whisking until melted. Salt and pepper to taste. Top soup with crumbled bacon bits and diced green onion.

Note: cooked chicken is a good addition as well as some broccoli. If you add broccoli, also add 1/4 tsp baking soda when you simmer the cauliflower mixture. The baking soda removes any bitterness and lets the nutty broccoli flavor shine through. A 1/4 tsp of cayenne added to the mixture gives the soup a hint of spiciness.

Enjoy! Till next time…………Melanie
