This creamy bacon cauliflower soup is dairy free and flavored with bacon while being low carb and low fat. It is the perfect light lunch or start to a rich dinner.
I've been trying to get more fuel pulls into my diet. For those who don't follow Trim Healthy Mama, a fuel pull is a meal or snack that is low carb and low fat. They help give your weight loss a boost or can balance out heavy meals.
Since I had a bag of cauliflower crumbles in the fridge waiting to be used I decided to make a quick Cauliflower Soup. I kept tasting it and knew it needed something. I wanted to keep it dairy-free so my eyes caught on the bag of bacon crumbles in the fridge. A quick check of the nutrition facts and I realized that I could use enough to get that bacon flavor but still keep this as a fuel pull. The two tablespoons bacon crumbles have a total of 4 grams of fat and this recipe serves 2-4 depending on whether it is your main course or a side.
Ingredients in Bacon Cauliflower Soup
fresh cauliflower crumbles ( or chopped fresh cauliflower)
unsweetened almond milk
bacon crumbles or cooked bacon
salt & pepper
- Put cauliflower and broth in a saucepan and heat until simmering. Cook until the cauliflower is tender. Add the almond milk and bacon crumbles and puree with an immersion blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- You can transfer to a regular blender but be careful with blending hot liquids. Remove the inner circle of the lid and cover with a clean towel. The liquid will rise but the towel will let some steam escape so you shouldn't have a mess to clean up.
