This chowder is hideous, I'm not going to lie. However, it's tasty, and that makes up for a lot, right?
I don't have too much to say about this soup, honestly. It's ugly, and it's good, and even though it's mostly only vegetables, I had it for dinner, and I was really full afterward. Also, bacon.
BrocCauli Chowder with Bacon
From Practical Paleo
4 cups broccoli, chopped and steamed
4 cups cauliflower, chopped and steamed
2 cups chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
Using a blender (immersion or regular), liquefy the broccoli with half the broth until smooth. Then, do the same with the cauliflower -- liquefy it with the other half of the broth.
Combine the soup purees in a pot over medium heat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring to combine. You can add more broth, 1/4 cup at a time, if the chowder is too thick. (I ended up adding another half cup.)
Garnish with bacon.
P.S. Totally cheated on Paleo and added cheese.
