Creamy Cauliflower, Potato & Parsnip Soup with crunchy chickpeas and kale to top!
Oh, and remember that basil pesto recipe I just shared with you…..I used a bit of that on a piece of sourdough bread to dunk in the soup. Delish! You can even take a scoop of the pesto and twirl into your soup to really pack in flavor.

Here’s the ingredients: 

5 small potatoes
10oz cauliflower
1 parsnip
1/2 med onion about 1/2 chopped
3 cloves garlic
4 oz uncured pancetta
1 tbls evoo
2 tbls butter
1.5 Qts Broth
1 can (13.5 oz)Coconut milk
Garlic and onion powder
1/4 tsp Celery seed

Brown the pancetta in a tbl of evoo and remove from stock pot. Next I added the onion and garlic and sauté a few. Little seasoning and then layer in the veggies and butter, toss and cook a few. Next add the broth and milk, season again. Seasoning as you go really builds the soups flavor!
Coverer and simmer on low until all veg is fork tender. Use an immersion blender and blended all until creamy.

Top with crispy chickpeas flavored with cumin, curry, s+p, coconut oil.
Kale chips flavored with coconut oil, nutritional yeast, acv, s+p.
Placed both a dehydrator at 118 for several hrs until crispy. Kale can be removed long before the chickpeas. You could use an oven on a low setting or air fryer but the dehydrator is our fave.

Remember that pancetta? Used that as a topper too!

We made this for family during the holidays and was loved by all so we thought you guys might enjoy too! Let me know if you make it.
