The other night I made myself some soup and as I sat there eating it I thought, “this tastes almost exactly like a rich, creamy potato soup!” But, there was no potato in it.
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good rich, creamy soup in the cold weather.
Unfortunately, most of the fat loss friendly soups are far from creamy and filling!
I hate having a bowl of soup and being hungry 7 seconds later.
This soup will not leave you with that problem! It filled me up all night long!
If you want a delish, easy soup that’s as comforting as it is fat loss friendly, you’ve got to give this one a try!
Faux-Potato Soup (Creamy Cauliflower Soup)
- 1 carrot, peeled & diced
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 celery stalks, diced
- 1/4 yellow onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 bag frozen cauliflower (I used Trader Joe’s)
- 1-2 cups bone broth (depending on how thick or thin you want the soup, start with 1 and adjust accordingly. Yes, you can use stock if you don’t have access to broth – PS – did you listen to yesterday’s podcast on bone broth? Don’t miss it!
- Salt & pepper to taste
In a skillet, melt butter.
Add garlic, onion, celery & carrot and saute until soft and slightly browned)
Meanwhile, add bone broth and cauliflower to a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes
Combine cauliflower and veggies in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add more bone broth to blender if you want your soup thinner.
Add salt & pepper to taste
Now I know what you’re thinking…”How many people does it serve?”
I ate more than half of it for dinner.
But guys, I want you to think about it this way: it’s 100% relative.
I didn’t have anything else with it, which is way different than if you’re having it along side a steak and salad, ya know?
How much did you eat during the day?
What are your goals?
How hungry are you?
Are you satisfied after a half cup? Then stop!
Practice listening to your body and evaluating what you eat based on your whole day, not based on one single meal.
Hope you enjoy it!
