When you hear the secret ingredient, this recipe will really seem too good to be true.
Ok, so, my fellow clean eaters may not be too surprised. Regardless, try this Skinnytaste recipe, and prepare for your mind to be blown.
Note: This soup still incorporates potatoes (phew, right?), but the cauliflower thickens the consistency, given the minimal amount of potatoes.
Substituting carbs with veggies
In a perfect world, people would want to eat veggies on principle and not just because they can be mistaken for carbs. Since we don’t live in a perfect world, I follow the “[most things] in moderation” rule. However, as someone who loves carbs, substituting them with veggies is one of my tried and true weight-loss strategies.
Here are a couple carb alternatives:
- Pizza crust
Until today, I’ve only used cauliflower to make “popcorn,” so I was shocked about how much the chicken broth, milk, cauliflower and potato mixture tasted like traditional potato soup!
I let the soup simmer while I cooked the bacon. Out of the five-serving batch that the recipe yielded, I ate about two servings while it simmered, leaving me with only this large Ziploc container of soup.
Needless to say, this recipe was a winner, as most of The Skinnytaste Cookbook recipes have been so far!
