Practical Paleo: BrocCauli Chowder with Bacon



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
Serves 4-ish


Ingredients


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.



So good.
