Leave a comment

So I’ve been doing good since the New Year with the Paleo diet way of life….YES, it’s a way of life, a way in which you eat, feed your soul, and let your body know you care about it.

If you’d like more info about Paleo, get your Google on…you’ll find A LOT of info on there.

With this nasty cold/flu going around my good friend Brandy got rather sick 😦 so the other night I thought I would make some soup, mostly for her, but I ate my fair share.  So of course, I have to share it here with you.

What you’ll need:

2 tbsp oil, I used walnut

1/3 red onion, chopped

1 lg head of cauliflower

1/4 can of chipolte peppers in adobo sauce (found in the Mexican food section)

1-2 cups breakfast sausage (such as Jimmy Dean)

4 cups chicken stock

3/4 cup soy milk (or you can use whatever milk you like, that’s not actually milk – coconut, almond, ect.)

2 tbsp chopped garlic

1 ts basil (dried works)

1/2 tsp paprika

S & P to taste

What you’ll do:

~Chop onion and caramelize in oil in large pot over medium heat.

~Meanwhile chop cauliflower, peppers, and sausage.

~When onion is caramelized, add sausage and cook it throughly.

~ When cauliflower is done, use an immersion blender and blend, really focusing on the cauliflower, or you can place half of it in a blender and blend.  Puree and dump back in pot.
