Cauliflower Chowder

It’s cold today in Southern California. Weird, I know. I had a craving for something hot and full of flu-fighting veggies. No, I’m not sick. But everyone else seems to be. Might as well satisfy a craving for hot soup and launch a preemptive strike on those germs  destined to inject me with the flu. So here’s a super-easy recipe absolutely packed with nutrients, protein and good carbohydrates.


2 heads of Cauliflower

3-4 stalks of Broccoli

1 yellow Onion (chopped)

2 cloves of Garlic (chopped)

3 Celery stalks

1 lb Grass Fed Ground Beef

6 Bacon strips

48 Oz Box of Organic Chicken Broth

Sea Salt/Pepper to taste

Pinch of Cayenne

Chopped Serranos (garnish)

Chopped Green Onions (garnish)



In a large pot, boil the cauliflower and broccoli until soft. Using a high-powered blender, blend the soft vegetables into a thick liquid. Pour the thick liquid into pot and place on the stove on low heat. Pour the broth into the vegetable mix and mix well. Bring to a simmer on low heat. In a frying pan, cook the bacon strips and set aside to cool. Chop the bacon into bits for topping. In the same frying pan, pour off most of the bacon grease leaving a coating in the pan. Place pan back on the heat, add onions, chopped garlic and ground meat. Cook until meat is done. Once meat is done, pour the meat/onion/garlic mixture into the simmering vegetable mixture. Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.

Serve the hot soup into a bowl, garnish with chopped serannos, green onions and bacon bits. NOTHING in this bowl of soup is bad for you, so feed the machine.
