  • ½ cup friendly fat to cook in butter, coconut oil, tallow, lard
  • 2 large heads organic cauliflower coarsely chopped (if the heads are on the smaller side grab 3 heads)
  • 4 large carrots coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium onions coarsely chopped
  • 1 head garlic coarsely chopped
  • 3 quarts chicken broth More if you want to “stretch it” or make it a thinner soup. Homemade bone broth is preferable for the most nourishment – see Tips section for the simplest slow cooker method to make your own!
  • 2 cups organic corn Optional if you are grain free – potatoes work nicely if you can have those but it is just as good without it too! I get large bags of frozen organic corn at Costco – corn is heavily GMO’d so I recommend sticking to organic only!
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne optional if you don’t like the kick – it is really good though!
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large stock pot, cook your cauliflower, carrots, and onions in the friendly fat for about 15-20 minutes on medium-ish heat nice and slow. Add a good few big pinches of sea salt to bring out their juices and sweeten them.
  • Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  • Add the stock, corn (or potatoes if you are grain free), and seasoning, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer about 5-10 minutes (may need to go longer if you are using potatoes).
  • Use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree through, and then season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
