It is amazing how comforting soup can be! Soups that are made from veggies and beans are full of nutrition! For those picky eaters you can hide a few veggies that they might not eat alone.
Last winter I made a cauliflower soup but was missing a kick! Today I made the same soup but added extra veggies and bacon pieces. That was the missing flavor I was looking for. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. You can always make a double batch and freeze the extras.
Cauliflower Veggie & Bacon Soup
- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 2 c. organic milk
- 1 head fresh broccoli
- 1-2 cups chopped carrots

Heat olive oil, onion, garlic and cauliflower until cauliflower softens. Then add Milk and broth. Cook 5-10min. to a slight boil. Then turn down to med. heat. Use a Immersion hand blender to puree the cauliflower (I love to leave some cauliflower pieces). Then add Broccoli, Carrots and bring to a low boil until they are soft. Last add Bacon.
Salt and Pepper to taste and I love fresh Parmesan Cheese on top!
