Roasted Cauliflower and Mild Cheddar Soup
Doing LC can be a challenge at times. You can eat so many things so your menu can be almost limitless (of course minus the carbs...ie bread, rice pasta) But I can tell you from experience that you should never be hungry eating this way. If you are you're not following the plan right and you are not eating enough.
Fall is upon us and the weather is just now starting to change. Here in Kansas you really don't know what the weather will be like from day to day. I've seen days where it's 40° and the next day it's 85°. With the weather being a bit cooler the past couple of days I've been craving soup. Cauliflower is a good veggie when doing LC....so what better to make than a nice roasted cauliflower and cheese soup. Cheese is also another yummy food you can have with not guilt but you can't go overboard either.
1/2 head fresh cauliflower (roasted or boiled)
3 cloves garlic
2 medium sized carrots
1 medium onion
2 stalks celery
1/3 to 1/2 cup shredded mild cheddar (or cheese of your choice)
1/2 and 1/2 (you can use heavy cream)
1-2 slices of bacon
2 large tomatoes quartered (guess you could use canned tomatoes)
salt and pepper
In a sauce pan put a cook bacon and cook the onion until tender, add garlic carrots, celery and cauliflower, and tomatoes. Add chicken stock and cook until tender. Salt and pepper to taste. With an emulsion blender blend soup until smooth. Serve with some fresh basil on top. Enjoy.
Thanks for taking time from you day to stop by and always Remember to Find the Time to do all the Things You L♥ve.
