Cauliflower Bacon Soup
Cauliflower Bacon Soup is a delicious, heart warming soup that’s perfect as a weeknight meal or decadent enough for an impromptu party!
Soup is good for the soul.
Even when it’s 83 degrees outside.
Does anyone know if it is really fall? Or are we just going to sweat our asses off until Christmas? Santa might be delivering presents on a giant boat wearing flip-floppies with mermaids instead of reindeer. Wouldn’t that be quite the holiday surprise?
Anyway, I don’t mind slurping soup year round. It’s an easy dish to make when you just need a little comfort from this crazy world. With the 4,386 variations of soups, it’s hardly a dish I will ever grow tired of unless you make me cilantro soup. Then I might have to destroy you with a lightsabor.
Well, the soup recipe I am sharing with you today comes with no altercations. In fact, this Cauliflower Bacon Soup from my friend, Jen’s (author of the blog Savory Simple) new cookbook, The Gourmet Kitchen might actually bring world peace. It’s that effing good.
The first time I met Jen was back at Mixed Con in 2012. It was my first time attending a food blog conference and I had no idea what to expect or who I would meet. I remember knowing of Jen’s blog because of 1) her stunning photography, 2) her delicious recipes, and 3) her fantastic humor. Carrie from Bakeaholic Mama introduced us and I will never forget Jen saying that she knew who I was! I about died from shock, but I was also humbled because Jen was so wonderful and welcoming.
And from there, our blogging friendship has continued over these past four years. Which is why I am so excited for the release of her cookbook. The Gourmet Kitchen is not only full of drool-worthy recipes and photos, but every dish is extremely approachable. Jen has a culinary background and with her talent she makes these gourmet recipes that make you a better cook and really expand your palate. Can you say wining?!
So once you get your hands on her book, you’ve got to make the Cauliflower Bacon Soup. The dish comes together in an hour, but packs a ton of flavor. Serve it as an appetizer for Thanksgiving or hoard it for yourself to nibble on all week long. Just be warned, if someone finds your stash, you might have to use a lightsabor to fight them off.
Congrats, Jen!! You’ve out done yourself!
