Loaded Cauliflower Bisque | THM: S or FP

Save for later!

This loaded cauliflower bisque is so much tastier than it looks (three cheers for brightly colored bacon, sour cream, parsley and cheese that make simple soups doubly delicious and photogenic!), but don’t judge a soup by its color!

Aside from being boilinapotandrunitthroughtheblender kind of easy, this loaded cauliflower bisque can be a Trim Healthy Mama-friendly Fuel Pull or an S, depending on how much of the suggested garnish you choose to put on top.  I tend to go all out when in come to putting cheese and bacon crumbles on my soup, so this bisque often turns into an S for me, but it’s amazingly good without, too.

Thanks to the addition of Vitamin B-rich, protein-packed, high fiber nutritional yeast, you can still enjoy a cheesy flavor even when you’re in Fuel Pull mode!

Nutritional Yeast

While nutritional yeast gives this cauliflower bisque a dairy-free, cheesy flavor, paprika, mineral salt, and ground pepper warm it up. Onion, leek and celery sauted in a pat of butter, chicken broth, and dried parsley add to the overall flavor. A small amount of half & half (not enough per serving to make this bisque an S), adds to the creaminess. You could even leave it out completely, if you prefer.

Pile on the bacon, cheddar, and sour cream for a solid S meal; or, use leaner turkey bacon, a sprinkle of Parmesan, and a dollop of 0% fat Greek yogurt for loaded flavor the Fuel Pull way. Consider adding a scoop of collagen to your bisque for a protein boost.
