Bowl of Loaded Cauliflower Soup
Instructions
  1. In a frying pan, over medium heat, cook bacon until very crisp, 5-7 minutes. Using tongs transfer bacon to paper towels to drain and cool. Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings and discard the rest. Break up bacon into small bits once it has cooled and dried to crispy.
  2. To a medium size pot, add the bacon drippings, leeks, celery root/stalks and garlic. Increase heat to medium-high and cook stirring often until crisp-tender, about 5 mins.
  3. Add cauliflower, stock, salt and pepper – bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 15 mins until the cauliflower is very tender.
  4. Pour mixture into a blender (carefully!!) or use an immersion blender. Add the half and half and blend till nice and smooth.
  5. Return mixture to pan and cook until thoroughly warmed. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with bacon, cheese, parsley and chives, croutons….
Recipe Notes

To Make Croutons:  Slice your bread of choice and cut into 1/4” cubes. Melt 2 tablespoons of Honey Ghee and add dill or any other herb, salt, pepper and mix everything together. Spread out on a cookie sheet and place into a 375F preheated oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on crunchy you want them. Remove from oven and cool.

Carrot and White Bean Soup
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with sides with coconut oil so veggies don’t stick. Melt 2 tablespoons of ghee and toss the onion, garlic and carrots until evenly coated. Place on the cookie sheet and lightly drizzle with one tablespoon of ghee. Toss veggies till evenly coated and season with salt and pepper. (You will add the leek halfway through the roasting). Roast veggies till tender and golden, about 35 minutes. (Roasting time depends on the size of your veggies.)
  2. Transfer vegetables to a blender or food processor including all the brown bits from the baking sheet and puree until smooth, slowly adding stock as needed for a smooth puree. The key word is smooth.
  3. Transfer the puree to the soup pot and stir in the stock, beans and half of the dill. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook till all the flavors are blended. Add the sour cream and last tablespoon of ghee. Season to taste with unrefined salt and cracked pepper. Garnish with the remaining dill.
Recipe Notes

Serves four and is perfect with P & J sandwiches. Use good whole grain crusty bread and your favorite nut butter and jam.
