During the cooler season, I love to come up with hearty, filling, yet nutritious meals using my Instant Pot or stockpot that my whole family can enjoy! I also like to make things like soups, bone broth, and stews ahead of time and pop them in the freezer that I can easily heat up during busy weeknights when I just don’t have time to cook dinner. I love making this creamy cauliflower and bacon soup during the colder months. It is dairy-free, while still having the creamy consistency you would get with a dairy-based soup, and is full of flavor from the bacon, herbs, and spices. 

This soup is also:

  • Optimal-Reset approved
  • Whole-30 Approved
  • 21-Day Sugar Detox Approved

  1. Start by adding all the ingredients minus the bacon to a stockpot over medium heat. Bring to a boil.
