If you are like us, you may be following a stricter eating plan this month. Cue the cauliflower. Well, as you probably have realized by now, we love our soups at Nearly All Things. The problem is that we are looking to add more protein in our diet. So, Ashlee came up with this great idea to use bone broth in her Cauliflower Soup.
And, just in case you aren’t totally familiar with bone broth, let me share some of its top health benefits. To start with, it contains a slew of vitamins and nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, selenium, and iron. Bone broth also contains gelatin which breaks down into collagen and can help protect the joints. It also contains the amino acid glycine which can help you sleep better at night. And lastly, which takes us back to why it was added to this soup in the first place, bone broth can help you lose weight because it is high in protein and makes you feel full longer. Tah dah!
Cauliflower Bone Broth Soup
- Head of cauliflower
- 2 – 3 Cups Bone broth (depending on how thick you want your soup)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 cup milk or cream
- 1/2 stick of butter
- salt & pepper to taste
Toppings (optional – but so worth it!):
- Cheddar Cheese
Steam the head of cauliflower. Add steamed cauliflower, garlic, and bone broth to the blender.
Transfer blended mixture to the stovetop. Add about 1/2 cup of milk or cream. Add 1/2 stick of butter and stir until it is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cook on low for 10 minutes. Here is what your soup will look like, especially if you like it a little thicker like me:
Top your soup off with cheese and bacon – c’mon you know you want to 🙂
