As you may know, I LOVE sharing my recipes with you — because I’m a huge foodie.
Sometimes we can get stuck on this idea that healthy food can’t be super satisfying, but in my opinion, this is simply not true —
So I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes, which I’ve been eating non-stop for the past few weeks:
Roasted Cream of Cauliflower Soup.
It’s warm, savory, easy to make, AND low in carbs…
Making it the perfect treat if you’re watching your figure but still want to enjoy a filling, savory meal. (Oh, and it tastes especially good when paired with a slice of toasted sourdough bread.)
Plus, it can help wake up feeling light — because it’s got tons of fiber, which supports your digestion.
So without further ado… here’s the recipe:
Ingredients (serves 6):
- 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 sweet onion, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 large heads of cauliflower, cut into 2-inch florets
- 1 Tbsp white miso paste (optional, but recommended)
- 7 cups vegetable broth
- 2 cups coconut milk
- ¼ cup nutritional yeast
- 1 bay leaf
- ½ teaspoon fresh nutmeg
- 1 tsp. fine sea salt, or more to taste
- 2 tsp. coarse black pepper
- Preheat your oven to 425 F.
- In a large bowl, toss together the olive oil, onion, garlic, and cauliflower, along with the nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes, until the cauliflower is golden brown.
- Transfer to a large soup pot with a lid, then stir in miso paste. Continue stirring until the paste is thoroughly mixed in.
- Add stock, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, and bay leaf. Cook on medium heat, covered for 20 minutes. Cauliflower should be tender.
- Puree ingredients until smooth in a blender.
- Return ingredients to the pan and cook for an additional 10 minutes. If the soup is too thick for your liking, simply add a little water.
- Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
- Garnish with chopped herbs and serve with toast.
Sometimes I’ll eat 2 large bowls of this soup in one sitting. It’s THAT good.
And hey, if you do have that second bowl — there’s no need to feel guilty.
Cauliflower is a great low-carb alternative to potatoes or grains, making this a healthy choice if you’re watching your weight.
Plus, coconut milk is high in slimming fat (known as medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs), which can also help support your metabolism.
And there you have it! A tasty homemade soup recipe, just for you!
