Keto Turmeric Cauliflower Soup
Maybe you’ve never seen cauliflower soup at the store, but the savvy people making it at home know a good thing when they taste it. This keto turmeric cauliflower soup is a healthy bowl of comfort food!
How to Make this Keto
You might not think that cauliflower soup would be off-limits on keto, but many recipes out there have some problematic ingredients for your macros.
Cauliflower soup at its best is thick and creamy – it should satisfy. Unfortunately for you, the way that most cooks achieve this is by adding in not-so-keto ingredients.
First on the list is flour. Depending on the recipe, they might not add much, but it’s best to steer clear of that on keto.
Some recipes also include dairy, which I like to omit from my creations. Not so much for the keto factor, but because so many people are sensitive to it.
If you don’t believe me, try going dairy-free for 30 days. Here’s a helpful article.
This cauliflower soup will not have flour, butter, or cheese. And it doesn’t need them. I’ll incorporate other things to achieve a similar texture and amazing flavor.
For this soup, I used coconut cream to beef up the thickness. It also adds an extra creaminess that you might otherwise get from dairy.
You can sometimes find cans of coconut cream, or you can refrigerate a can of coconut milk and use the hardened stuff that forms at the top.
For flavor, you’ll add garlic and turmeric. The turmeric is going to give this soup a nice distinctive golden color.
Bone Broth Base
Unless you prefer to buy your bone broth, you’re going to need to allot extra time to make the base for this soup.
If you have an instant pot, check out this great bone broth recipe. It’s ready to go in two hours.
If you’re working with the stove top, refer to this recipe. You’ll need about six hours of cook time to allow this broth to simmer to perfection.
