It’s simple – this creamy cauliflower chowder is everything in my life right now. Because I’m trying so hard to get rid of the holiday bloat that still seems to stick around. And this warm, comforting, creamy cauliflower chowder is my new happy place. When I can just get a bowl and watch Gilmore Girls all day.
Yes you heard that right. I turned into the girl who watches Gilmore Girls all day. And I think I’ve converted Denver too. But in my defence, I started because Netflix just kept throwing it up as a recommended watch. Which is cool, because I discovered it and now I love it. Especially when I’m working so it runs in the background and I go on with my day. Is that weird? Do you have a weird thing like that when you work?
Watch Listen to Netflix in the background, sip on piping hot cauliflower chowder and basically make that your happy place.
So coming back to the deets here. And trying to keep away from the whole Netflix talk. This creamy cauliflower chowder is the best thing this winter is going to see. Its seriously addictive especially when you top it up with some extra virgin olive oil and lots of bacon. Yes, that olive oil is going to do all sorts of things to this cauliflower chowder. And bacon. What can I say about bacon that’s going to convince you. BACON is just awesome and it makes everything better. Even this cauliflower chowder, which is already awesome.
Now I’ve made cauliflower soup once before, and it was this super creamy, super smooth cauliflower soup. Which was amazing but this ones sort of chunky and creamy at the same time. Which just makes for perfection. Plus this cauliflower chowder is also gluten free, so it’s perfect without any flour or processed ingredients with one simple trick. A hand blender. You just blend a part of the chowder while it’s still cooking so that all that cauliflower makes a creamy base, but there’s still some small chunky bits for your to bite into and give it it’s chowder-ness.
So let’s put on the soup pot and give this creamy cauliflower chowder a go! And watch some Netflix on the side. I won’t tell if you won’t.
