This cauliflower soup is super-simple to make and is hearty enough to work as a lunch all by itself, maybe accompanied by some crunchy bread.


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into large pieces
  • ¼ cup Paleo flour (gluten-free)
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken bone broth (go with veggie broth if vegan)
  • 13.5 ounces coconut milk
  • 6 slices turkey bacon, cooked and diced (remove if vegan)
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, chopped


  1. In a stock pot over medium high heat, melt coconut oil with garlic, onion, carrots and celery. Cook until tender.
  2. Blend cauliflower in a food processor until consistency of fine pieces is achieved. Add to stock pot until cooked through.
  3. Add in flour, salt and pepper to taste, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add in broth and coconut milk. Stir well. Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes until desired consistency is achieved.
  5. While the soup is cooking, use a pan to cook the turkey bacon about 4 minutes per side at medium heat on the stovetop.
  6. Season to taste and garnish with bacon and fresh parsley.


You could even make this a vegan-friendly cauliflower soup recipe by eliminating the turkey bacon and using veggie broth instead of chicken.
