Gluten-Free Cauliflower Potato Soup – healthy, quick and nutritious.

I love the simplicity of this soup.

It’s important for me that a soup is easy to make without a big fuss and much effort. This cauliflower potato soup is a very light but yet very wholesome soup and filled with many great nutrients. When I make this cauliflower potato soup I usually skip the addition of onions. That way the soup is easier to digest. When it comes to any soup that contains cruciferous vegetables I don’t add onions, so you don’t feel bloated afterwards.

Cauliflower is one of the healthiest vegetables, and just like potatoes, an excellent source of Vitamin C. For an extra nutritional bang I’m always adding minced parsley to my soups. I just love the taste of freshly minced parsley in a hot soup and it’s another great source of vitamins and antioxidant. Parsley provides an excellent amount of Vitamin K which has anti-inflammatory benefits and is another great source of Vitamin C and even some iron.

It’s great when you know you’re doing something so good for your body with a healthy soup like this.

 

Cauliflower Potato Soup

 

 

Ingredients:

serves 4

2 cups of boiled Potatoes, diced

2 tablespoons Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Avocado Oil

1 medium size Cauliflower

4 Cups Vegetable or Chicken Broth (whatever you prefer)

Sea salt

Black Pepper

Paprika

Turmeric

Parsley

 

  • In a large pot steam cauliflower with water for about 20 minutes or until florets are tender

 

  • Add oil to a skillet and slightly brown potatoes in the oil. Season with sea salt, pepper, paprika and turmeric

 

  • strain cauliflower (for extra nutrition, don’t dispose the boiling water from the cauliflower and make your own broth by adding soup cubes)

 

  • add potatoes, cauliflower and broth to a blender and puree until soft

 

  • before serving sprinkle soup with minced parsley

 

Tip:

When I buy fresh parsley I only use what I need and right away I store the rest in a freezer bag inside the freezer. Once the parsley is frozen you can crush it slightly while it’s inside the freezer bag. That way you will have perfectly minced parsley with any big effort. Every time you need parsley you can take some out of the bag and put the rest back in the fridge for later.

Just saying …
