Soup Maker Creamy Cauliflower & Crab Soup

"cauliflower and crab soup"

Welcome to my soup maker creamy cauliflower & crab soup!

I love cauliflower and it wasn’t until last year when I decided to get involved in the Paleo lifestyle that I discovered how many things you can make with cauliflower. I have now taken on cauliflower pizza, cauliflower burgers, cauliflower rice, cauliflower mash, cauliflower sauce and now most recently cauliflower and crab soup.

Cauliflower is a fantastic base for a soup. This is because it is very creamy once cooked and doesn’t have an over the top flavour so works well with whatever other flavours that you want to throw in.

In this recipe I am bringing you back to my seafood childhood with some cauliflower and crab soup. I used to eat crabs all the time and my Grandad would always be bringing me one home with him. Then I would remove the crab meat from the crab and eat it on warm crusty bread.

But for those of you that are mad for crab, it can’t get any better than inside a soup. It has a great flavour and makes you want more and more and more. I can even convince my teenager to eat it, who never touches seafood.

So if you have kids that just don’t want to eat things that are healthy then I thoroughly recommend that you blend it into a soup and see if you can get them eating healthy things that way instead!

I love adding the white wine as it gives it that lovely French flavour. If you don’t drink use coconut milk instead as this can give it a lovely kick to the dish.

    Trying this recipe tomorrow!
    Is the bacon put in at stage 2 pre-cooked or raw?

      The bacon is placed into the soup maker uncooked.
