Stay Cozy With Soup
If you’ve been by Running on Real Food you may have noticed I’ve been on soup making rampage. No joke. I’ve posted 4 soups and 1 stew in the last few weeks. I guess I like to eat all my soup within a 4 month timeframe because I really don’t make soup during the spring and summer months. It’ll be back to non-stop salads in no time so I better get these soups in while I can. It’s all about being cozy right now, ya know?

What’s your favourite kind of soup?
Did you ever have a bowl of soup that was so good you wanted to eat bowl after bowl?
I remember one such bowl, I think it was a butternut squash coconut bisque, oh ya, that one I could have eaten over and over again. I might have to try to recreate it soon!
Roasted Garlic On Everything
Anyways, about this creamy roasted garlic cauliflower soup…
What’s not to love because if you don’t love roasted garlic then what is your life? Ha. But really, isn’t roasted garlic the most amazing thing. I can eat it all on it’s own, in or on pretty much anything…maybe not with dessert though. Immunity boost x1000 too because garlic is a superfood immune booster full of antioxidants.

Quick Tip: wash your hands really well after making this soup and before venturing into public because I forgot and was stinking up the gym big time. Ooopsies. Sorry workout partner. And it wasn’t even my breath, it was just more like a garlic aura. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing?

Wait, Doubles As Gravy?
About this gravy situation. The first time I made this soup, it was really thick, almost like gravy. I scooped that soup/gravy onto everything from roasted veggies, to spaghetti squash, to baked potato and even crispy tofu and it. was. awesome. For the final recipe I only added an extra half cup of broth so feel free to start with a bit less liquid and add more after you blend it to reach your desired on consistency.
Either way, the flavour makes a wonderful sauce for whatever you feel like using it for. You can reduce the amount of liquid used a bit if you like an extra thick and creamy soup. Either was…it gonna taste gooooood.
