Getting right on in to alllllll the fall foods. You def can’t let fall pass you by without adding some soup into your life.
AM I RIGHT?
Side note: I have been asked a lot about more Indian dishes and don’t worry! More Indian dishes will be coming soon to the blog. I like to use Indian flavors in non-Indian dishes so check out some of my old recipes for fusion.
Back to soup.
Literally everyone I know is on the low-carb/no carb trend and honestly, I could give a fuck.
I have always said, everything in moderation. I have never deprived myself of anything (food wise). If I want to eat it I will. I know there are consequences to those actions, even if it is in small amounts, so I have been trying to lighten up my diet by trying to cut out unnecessary carbs, or making smart switches.
(But don’t get me wrong, sometimes you just crave pizza and that craving should not be silenced!)
I LOVE soup and can eat it all year round, but during fall it makes me feel cozy as the temp drops.
I wanted to make chowder for dinner but I didn’t want to use potatoes as they are full of starch, and yes, you guessed it, CARBS.
Most of you know that cauliflower is an awesome replacement for a lot of yummy carb loaded dishes like rice, mac and cheese and pizza. SO, I thought, why not put it into my chowder!
Traditionally chowders are thick and stew like and have a milk or cream base, usually with onions and seafood, but honestly, do whatever you like! As long as the base is milk or cream and includes a roux, BOOM, you got yourself some chowder!
My chowder has a base of carrots, celery and onion (pretty typical) and then is topped with a shit ton of cauliflower, and that’s it! Corn, or sweet potato or leeks would be great additions to the chowder too.
Like I said, experiment! No need to follow all the recipe rules. Have fun with your food!
This meal is very guilt free and don’t be surprised if the whole pot is gone by the time dinner is over.
IT’S THAT GOOD.
Have a great week!
