The other day on Instagram I shared a picture of my first attempt at paleo cauliflower soup. I had skimmed a few recipes online but they had too many steps. I’m a simple girl. I want to eat delicious food but I don’t want to spend an hour in the kitchen and be left with a sink full of dishes.

Fast, delicious, simple and fat loss friendly, please. Is that too much to ask? Nah. I don’t think so.

Anyways, I recently stocked up on cauliflower rice from Trader Joe’s and I wanted to make some soup. I’m not much of a soup person (I guess I always thought it wouldn’t fill me up – this totally does!) but I was feeling a touch of the blues and decided on creamy, warm, fat loss friendly soup.

(Now, if you’re about to pout about not having Trader Joe’s cauliflower rice, there’s no need. The two ingredients are cauliflower and salt, so if you’ve got those, you’re in luck. You can chop up your raw cauliflower and put it in the blender, you can roast it and then blend it or you can buy frozen cauliflower, let it thaw a little & toss that in the blender. Any will do!)

I’ve made 2 super fast paleo cauliflower soups so far and if I whip up new ones, I’ll add them here.

Curried Cauliflower Soup

  • 1 bag Trader Joe’s cauliflower rice (see note above if you don’t have this)
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • Salt to taste

I put all of it into my Vitamix blender until smooth & creamy. Pour it into a pot and let cook on low heat for about 30 minutes.

Cauliflower Soup with Bacon

  • 1 bag Trader Joe’s cauliflower rice
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (you can omit this if you want to keep it lean. I’m a big fan of EVOO)
  • 2 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1 clove garlic (you can cook this first if you don’t like the sharpness of raw garlic)
  • 1 slice cooked bacon (don’t put this in the blender)
  • 1 sprig rosemary (don’t put this in the blender)

Add the cauliflower, butter, oil, bone broth and garlic to the blender and blend until smooth then transfer to a pot. Add the crumbled bacon slice & sprig of rosemary. Let simmer on low for approximately 30 minutes.

Another idea that I’ve done in puree form but not soup form would be to add either carrots, parsnips or sweet potato. All 3 of those are wonderful when paired with cauliflower.
