Well, if you read my previous post, you will know that I predicted that a fruit salad for lunch (after skipping breakfast) would sustain my hunger until dinner.
Hahahah, what a joke! I think maybe an hour after consuming that deliciously sweet salad I could feel the hunger pangs kick in. I was looking in my fridge for something quick and easy to prepare when I thought to myself, you are the Paleo Princess, there is nothing in your fridge that requires little to no preparation! Ah the downfalls of maintaining a healthy diet, free of preservatives 😭 Totally worth it of course but it just means that I will need to be patient and create something out of nothing.
That’s when I spied my cauliflower and it hit me! A nice savoury and warm soup would be perfect for a chilly day like today and wouldn’t fill me up too much where it would spoil my appetite for dinner. I could also kill two birds with one stone and have the soup as a side dish with dinner tonight. Problem solved!
I decided to pair a creamy cauliflower soup with a hint of spice and a flavouring of bacon. Through the various steps, I believe it was about an hour before I was able to enjoy my creation but let me tell you, it was definitely worth the wait! A silky smooth texture with the aroma of bacon, garlic and curry, this soup became my new favourite after the first bite!
Salt & pepper
Mild curry spice
In a large cast iron pot, cook the diced bacon. Remove and place to the side, keeping the grease in the pot.
Add both types of onions and garlic and sautee until onions are soft.
Add the chicken stock, coconut milk, spices and cauliflower and allow to simmer with top on for approximately 30 minutes.
Place in blender and blend until creamy.
Top with bacon crumble and enjoy!
