Today I’m going to share a recipe for one of my favorite soups – Easy Creamy Cauliflower Soup.  It’s a couple of years old and from my old blog, but it’s still one of my faves.

I’m a huge fan of soup. It’s warm and comforting, and besides that, it can be so good for you, win-win.

This soup is all of that.  I packed in a whole bunch of vegetables and try to use homemade broth, (but store bought, salt free broth works just fine also).  I use coconut milk to give it creaminess, but you can use dairy milk or cream if you prefer.  I love swirling the top with a little oil and some chopped walnuts for garnish.  Give it a go!

(Also, I’m sure you could leave out the bacon and use a vegetable broth to make this soup vegetarian. Haven’t tried it, and it would taste different, but I think it would work. Let me know if you try it)

Recipe type: Soup
Ingredients
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 head of cauliflower (mine weighed 927g)
  • 1 white sweet potato, peeled and chopped (mine weighed 260 grams)
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped (I used 100 g julienned)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I used ½ tsp of each)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk, if you want a creamier version
  • Olive oi and chopped nuts, for serving, optional
Instructions
  1. Trim cauliflower into big florets. Slice bacon and prepare other vegetables
  2. In a large pot (I use a cast iron dutch oven), over medium heat, cook bacon until fat covers the bottom of the pot and the bacon is cooked. Set bacon aside for later.
  3. Add onion to the pot and cook until softened but not browned. Add garlic, and the rest of the vegetables. Cook for a few minutes until slightly browned.
  4. Add chicken broth. Put the lid on the pot and turn heat down slightly. Simmer 20-30 minutes or so until vegetables are just softened.
  5. Take the pot off the heat. Puree soup to your preferred texture, using either an immersion blender, or very carefully using a stand blender. BE CAREFUL, VERY HOT.
  6. Add soup back to the pot, add in the reserved bacon.
  7. Return pot to heat and add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. If you want an even creamier soup, add in ¼ to ½ cup of coconut milk (or dairy milk or cream)
  9. Serve immediately. Garnish with olive oil and chopped nuts if desired.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet

Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet

This is one of my favorite dishes. I am a savory breakfast person.  I always choose eggs and toast over pancakes or waffles.  What do you choose? If you like pancakes, check out this Triple Chocolate Pancake recipe on my site – it’s a great one.sweet potato breakfast skillet PiperCooks.com

If you’re #teamsavory, and possibly on a mission to be a healthier new you this year, (even if you’re not, it’s still delicious) then try out this recipe.  If you cut the potatoes pretty small, they hardly take any time at all to cook.  This breakfast takes probably about 20 minutes or so.  First I fry the potatoes with the onions and some spices, then add in whatever else I feel like that day.  Usually some bell pepper, mushrooms, a bit of protein, and then top it with a fried egg. Perfection.

Also good with some avocado, sour cream or cheese on top.

 

To make it 21 Day Fix compatible, measure your ingredients before-hand in the proper containers, then follow the cooking directions.

Thai Red Curry Noodles

Thai Red Curry Noodles

Hi!  Long time no post.  I was on vacation in Florida with my family, visiting my parents for Christmas.  I had several Christmas recipes and photos ready to post, but just never got around to writing them up and posting them here.  So here’s what I have for you this week.  Try it, it’s awesome!

 

I came up with this dish after a weekend of eating at restaurants on another mini vacation last summer.  When I got home I just I needed something home cooked.  And I love Thai food.  This is pretty similar to my version of Tom Kha Gai as well.  I’ll make sure to share that recipe soon too, because it’s flippin’ delicious.  Anyway, enjoy this and have a wonderful weekend!
