Prep Notes


The best part is that it only takes 30 minutes of cooking time to make a big pot of it, so it’s a great batch cooking and freezer-friendly meal for you and your family!


About the ingredients in the Paleo Bacon Cauliflower Soup

Cauliflower – Cauliflower is a great vegetable that’s high in nutrients and low in carbs but still gives a creamy and thick texture to this soup once blended.

Bacon – The saltiness and crispiness of bacon complements with the creamy soup base beautifully. I highly recommend nitrate-free, pasture-raised bacon.

Coconut milk – Use full-fat, canned coconut milk for the extra yummy and velvety end result.

Broth – I recommend nutrient-rich bone broth when you make any kind of soup to make it even more healing and nourishing, but regular chicken broth can also work. Thrive Market makes this great bone broth that is also one of the few nightshade-free and autoimmune-friendly packaged broths available.

Ground black pepper – If you are on the autoimmune protocol and/or avoiding nightshades, feel free to omit to make this AIP-compliant.
