CAULIFLOWER AND BACON SOUP

Bacon isn’t something we have very often in our house but my son and hubby and son love it. So I figured this would be a good way to get cauliflower and vegetable broth into my son.

 

Gluten, egg and nut free

Serves 4-6 people

Prep time: 7 mins

Cooking time: 25 mins

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 300g middle bacon, cut into strips
  • 1 brown onion, finely diced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1L vegetable or chicken stock (I use my home made broths)
  • ½ Cup water
  • 100ml cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ Tbs. coconut or extra virgin olive oil

 

METHOD:

  • Heat a large saucepan on high heat and add the oil. Make sure the oil is heated and then add the diced bacon. Cook the bacon, stirring occasionally until crispy.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-high and remove half of the bacon from the pan and onto a clean plate.
  • Add the onion into the pan and cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes or until the onion is soft. Now add the garlic and cauliflower and cook for 2 minutes making sure the cauliflower is coated in the oil.
  • Pour in the stock and give it all a good stir ensuring that you scrape the bottom of the pan to get all the flavour off.
  • Put the lid on the saucepan and allow it to come to the boil. You may need to reduce the heat to medium-low to gently boil or even simmer the cauliflower. Simmer for 12-15 minutes or until the cauliflower is nice and soft.
  • Use a stick blender to gently blend the soup. I don’t blend mine too much because I like a few lumps and bumps.
  • Serve into bowls and top each dish with the bacon that was set aside and a little chopped parsley. My kids like some good quality wholemeal sourdough with avocado instead of butter with theirs.
