This soup is so yummy. It's comforting, and hearty. It's packed with vitamins and has a hint of sweet. One of my best girl friends, and star massage therapist, Kym, is the queen of healthy soups. Her potato based soups, and broth based soups, sausage soups and veggies soups... they are just all AMAZING. So I was intimidated to try to make a soup that would satisfy all my soup-loving needs.
And then I made this one. And even Mr. Charming swooned over it.
It's actually really simple to make. You'll need a large pot or soup pot, the ingredients below and an appetite! Bon Appetit!
1 yellow onion, diced
1 can organic coconut milk
3 cups of cooked, shredded chicken (I use the roasted Sprouts chicken)
2 small white sweet potatoes, cubed
1/2 tbl coconut oil
1 head of steamed broccoli, chopped
6 cups of vegetable broth or homemade bone broth
sea salt to taste
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
In your stock pot, saute the onion in coconut oil until translucent. While your onion is cooking, prep the vegetables and shred your cooked chicken breasts. Once the onions are done, add seasonings, potato, broccoli, coconut milk and broth.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for ten minutes. Add shredded chicken into the soup and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
P.S. This soup is REALLY good second day. Make a big batch and heat it for lunch leftovers. The flavors have a chance to marry and it is exceptional.
2 heads cauliflower (about 4 1/2 pounds total)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 quart chicken bone broth (or more for a thinner soup), divided
1 pint full fat coconut milk
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, plus 8 sprigs to garnish
Pinch of white pepper if tolerated
10 slices nitrate free bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled
Heat the oven to 400 Degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with cooking parchment, or lightly sprayed with olive oil cooking spray.
Use a paring knife to carefully cut out and discard the core of each head of cauliflower, then cut the heads into large florets. Place the florets in a large bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with about 2 teaspoons of sea salt, tossing to coat.
Arrange the florets in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes, then use tongs to flip the florets, roast for an additional 30 minutes, or until the florets are deeply caramelized and golden.
Transfer the florets to a blender or food processor and add 2 cups of the broth. Puree, then add the coconut milk and puree for another 3 minutes, or until completely smooth. The puree should be very thick. With the blender running, add the remaining broth, the thyme and white pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings.
The soup can be transferred to a saucepan and gently heated, or refrigerated overnight before reheating and serving. The flavor is best when it is allowed to rest overnight.
When ready to serve, garnish each bowl with a bit of cooked bacon and a sprig of fresh thyme.
1 cup basil
1 clove garlic
salt & pepper to taste
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
In a food processor pulse basil, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil while pulsing. Store in a sealed container and refrigerate until ready to use or you can freeze this in ziplock bags to use at a later date.
