But I can only eat so much Low-Carb Flatbread and Cauliflower Rice, so have been trying to come up with some new ways to enjoy all of this glorious cauliflower. This soup was an experiment for sure, and a happy one as it turned out so well. We almost always have some roasted chicken breasts in the refrigerator as I tend to do them in batches of 3 or 4 every few days so I have some on hand for salads or for The Captain's favorite fried rice dish at lunch time.
I used a bit of fat free yogurt in this dish to give it a creaminess, but you could leave it out if you are eating Paleo. This soup is naturally gluten free.
Roasted Cauliflower and Chicken Soup
Makes 2 servings.
- 4 cups cauliflower, washed and broken into florets
- 1/2 cup onion roughly chopped
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1 cooked chicken breast, about 6 to 8 ounces, cut into small chunks
- 1/2 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with a non-stick spray.
- Spread the cauliflower florets and onion pieces on the foil and drizzle or spray with the olive oil.
- Place in oven and roast for 30 minutes.
- Remove from oven and place the veggies in a stockpot or large sauce pan.
- Add the chicken broth and garlic to the veggies and bring to a boil.
- Simmer for about 5 minutes.
- Add the chicken and heat through about 5 more minutes.
- Remove from heat and then puree with an immersion blender till the chicken is shredded.
- Divide the mixture between 2 bowls and then stir 1/2 cup of yogurt into each.
- Season with salt and pepper.
You can garnish your soup in a variety of ways... I had a few pieces of shaved parmesan cheese on mine and it was delicious. I think crumbled bacon and chopped green onions and a bit of shredded cheddar would be really nice too.
