Broccoli “Potato” Soup

I’ve been on a bit of a cauliflower kick lately.  I never used to touch the stuff.  Now I love it.  And this past week (yes, during Christmas!) I’ve been “attempting” the Intro GAPS diet so I’ve been eating lots of soups.  I seem to have slipped off the wagon the past couple of days with going back to work, but I’m going to try to keep on it.  It takes a lot of planning, shopping, chopping and cooking!

Anyway, here is a soup that I really enjoy.  It tastes just like Broccoli Potato Soup to me but doesn’t have any starch in it.  And it’s great for the Intro diet or for anyone who just loves a nice bowl of healthy soup.

A secret ingredient is in the soup – beef bone marrow – and if this grosses you out, well, just ignore it.  But it is extremely healing for the bowels.  And you don’t taste it at all, really!  From Gapsdiet.com about bone marrow:

“The gelatinous soft tissues around the bones and the bone marrow provide some of the best healing remedies for the gut lining and the immune system; your patient needs to consume them with every meal.”

Here’s the recipe:

Butternut Squash “Risotto”

Welcome to the new website! I hope you find it even easier to navigate and enjoyable to look at.  Also, check out our new video if you haven’t had the chance yet!  You can find the link on the sidebar…  For some reason I can’t figure out how to link to it and will have to ask my wonderful web programmer.

The site was supposed to launch on the 15th so if you’ve been waiting, I apologize for the delay.  After Thanksgiving we’ll be diving into working on the member site portion which will hopefully be done sometime in January.

I am feeling a need for a break from the more technical areas of my work, so I thought I’d post a new recipe for you today!  I am very excited about this one.  I am finding that the cauliflower rice is very versatile and works in so many wonderful dishes you’d normally use regular rice in – like Chicken and Rice Soup.  So I thought I would give Risotto a try and I ended up loving it.  I believe my son would have loved it had I not put so much garlic in it!

If you’ve never made regular risotto with Arborio rice, it is really quite easy and not as hard as it may seem.  The main trick is the heat the stock apart from the rice in a separate pot, and then slowly add it to the rice as it cooks, stirring very frequently.

I used the same idea in this recipe, however I didn’t use nearly as much stock as you’d use in regular Risotto. I didn’t really consider this to be a Thanksgiving recipe but I am sure this would make a lovely addition to the table!

So here you go:
