Cauliflower Chowder - 23g Carbs, 3.5g Fiber, 8.2 Sugars
A quick, easy, light, healthy and tasty chowder starring cauliflower as the main ingredient that is a bowl of comfort food at it's best!
Prep Time: 10 min // Cook Time: 20 min // Total Time: 30 min // Servings: 4
2 Tbsp olive oil OR butter
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp thyme, chopped
1/4 cup flour (rice flour for gluten free)
1 head cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
2 bay leaves
1 cup milk OR cream
Salt, pepper and cayenne, to taste
1. Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the onions, carrots and celery and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes.
2. Mix in the garlic, thyme and flour and cook until the flour is lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
3. Slowly stir in the broth, deglazing the pan as you go, add the cauliflower and bay leaves, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 10-15 minutes.
4. Add the cream, season with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste, remove the bay leaves, remove from the heat and enjoy.
Option: Add 1-2 tablespoons white miso paste by taking some of the hot broth and mixing it into the miso in a bowl and then mixing it back into the chowder as you remove it from the heat. (The miso adds a nice umami flavor!) Note: miso is salty so you will not need to season with as much salt.
Option: Add 1/2 cup parmesan cheese! (More umami flavor!)
Option: Top with crumbled bacon!
Note: The cook time will vary depending on how large or small you cut the cauliflower.
