I recently shared this photo on Instagram & Facebook and had a big reaction to it. Folks, you will seriously love this soup. It has the comforting feel of a potato soup, yet there’s not a potato in sight.

Note: If you make this recipe with turkey (or beef) bacon to be biblically clean like I now do, you may need to add additional oil/fat as alternative bacons are very lean. See this recipe at Wholesome Skillet: How to Make Crispy Turkey Bacon

Ingredients
  

  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (See note)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste, (or 1 clove garlic, minced)
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut or broken into florets
  • 3 c chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon dry thyme leaves
  • 1/2 c coconut milk, full fat canned, (or whole milk for non-paleo)

Instructions
 

  • To begin, sauté the bacon in a Dutch oven over medium heat until it is golden.
  • With a slotted spoon, scoop it out to a plate lined with paper towels, leaving the drippings in the pot.
  • Toss in the diced onion and cook until they are tender.
  • Stir in the garlic and let it cook for a minute.
  • Add in the cauliflower, chicken broth, salt, pepper, and thyme. Bring it to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Let this cook for 10 – 15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender.
  • Pour in the milk.
  • If you have an immersion blender, use that to puree the soup in the pot. If you do not have an immersion blender, allow the soup to cool a bit, then purée in batches in a blender and reheat the soup.
  • To serve, either stir in the bacon or top the individual servings with it. Whichever you choose.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

You can also make this with turkey bacon, like I now do, to be biblically clean. If you do, add a little butter or duck fat to cook it in, as turkey bacon is very lean.

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork
