Dairy-free, paleo and keto cream of chicken soup with no thickening agents. Use as keto condensed soup, or enjoy straight up!
  • 1 medium cauliflower (600 grams), broken up into florets
  • ⅔ cup (157 mL) unsweetened original almond milk
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 mL) grey sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.23 mL) garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.23 mL) freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon (0.61 mL) celery seed (optional)
  • ⅛ (0.61 mL) teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ cup (30 grams) Collagen Protein Beef Gelatin, optional
  • ¼ cup (54 grams) finely diced cooked chicken thighs
  1. Place all ingredients but cooked chicken and gelatin in a small saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 7-8 minutes, until cauliflower is softened.
  2. Remove from the heat. Using a ladle, add ½ cup or so of the hot liquid to a medium-sized bowl. Add gelatin, one scoop at a time. Whisk until dissolved, then add the next scoop.
  3. Transfer the cauliflower mixture and gelatin mixture to your food processor, immersion blender or high-powered blender. Blend until totally smooth, about 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer cauliflower and gelatin mixture back to saucepan.
  5. Add cooked chicken to cauliflower and gelatin mixture. Cover and heat on low for 2-5 minutes, until thickened.
  6. Serve immediately.
Condensed soup: if wanting to use as keto condensed soup, reduce chicken broth to ⅓ cup and omit chicken thighs.

Pump up the fats: I like to add MCT oil to this soup after it's done, a good, serious helping of it! Just pour it on, stir it around and dig in.
