This Whole30 friendly dairy-free creamy cauliflower soup is just what the doctor ordered! This is the perfect soup for any week-day lunch or dinner when you’re in a pinch and need some nourishment fast!

I love how smooth and velvety this cauliflower soup is- all of the flavors are so rich and reminiscent of fall and winter that it warms up both your heart and body! It’s also low in carbohydrates and packed with protein thanks to my very favorite and all-natural collagen boosting ingredient: bone broth

Bone broth is one of my favorite ways to get protein in when I need some variation from my traditional chicken, salmon, eggs, or plant-based routine. I don’t eat a lot of the former on a weekly basis, and you really don’t need a lot to be healthy, which is why I consider myself plant-based. I’m not completely vegan, but I am very mindful of the sourcing of my protein and keep everything in moderation. I believe it’s not good to be completely for or against something. 

After all, plants are living too, so when you give thanks for the nutrition and energy that any source of nourishment is providing you, you’re sure to reap the benefits.

But anyways, back to this recipe! I used a motley of root vegetables to really enhance the taste of the cauliflower, as well as an array of fresh herbs. I always make an effort to stick with the freshest of herbs. My mom always had an herb garden while we were growing up, so I think I’m sort of spoiled that way 😉

When I can’t use fresh herbs or I’m in a pinch, I find that Simply Organic has the best quality of dried herbs. I use them in all of my sweet recipes if it calls for the holiday/winter spices, and they’re amazing in savory as well!

For the root vegetables, you can really make this to your preference- I used celery (definitely recommend), turnips, and leeks! It doesn’t really matter how you chop them, just as long as they’re all cooked through and can be easily blended in the food processor or blender! As for the bone broth, I used my favorite one from Brodo in NYC, which is a restaurant attached to our favorite restaurant, Hearth! They use the highest quality produce, meats, etc, and everything tastes so fresh there. However, I know that Bonafide also has a good bone broth, or if you’re vegan, you can add in your own veggie broth, then simply add a scoop of your favorite vegan neutral flavor protein powder!

That way, you’ll get the protein benefit still 😉 All of this came together so easily! I just roasted everything together then blended and voila! All set for an easy dinner 🙂 I topped with a drop of olive oil, which was so clutch. Does anyone say that anymore? I might be the only one!

Enjoy! 🙂
