Soups & Salads
Crockpot Cauliflower and Carrot Soup
Two 1-pound bags frozen cauliflower (or 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets)
2 carrots, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
3 cups beef or chicken stock
½ cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper
For Garnish: Turkey or Beef Bacon - crumbled or Parsley – chopped
Toss the cauliflower, carrots, onion, garlic, and stock in a 2-quart slow cooker.
Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 4 hours.
Add milk, salt, and pepper, then puree with a stick blender until smooth, adding more stock or water if needed to get desired consistency. Garnish generously with bacon and parsley.
Optional Step: If desired, sauté onions, carrots, and garlic in a little coconut oil over medium high heat until onions are translucent before adding them all to the crockpot. This add an extra depth of flavor!
