Easy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder

This easy roasted cauliflower chowder truly is easy, delicious and makes a satisfying cozy meal on chilly nights. You can feel good about this healthy soup because each creamy spoonful is low carb, low calorie, and full of flavor!  

 

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs , I would eat canned clam chowder and I loved it. Now I know better because that can of chowder has 370 calories, 22 grams of fat, plus 85% of our suggested daily sodium! It also contains Monosodium Glutamate, aka MSG.  MSG can cause all sorts of reactions like headaches, facial pressure, numbness, drowsiness and tingling. If you’ve ever experienced a reaction to MSG you know you want to avoid it.

I decided to make a low carb, low fat, healthy version of chowder, so I grabbed some cauliflower.

How do you roast cauliflower?

You could make this chowder without roasting the cauliflower and simply boil it, however roasting gives it a phenomenal flavor. I HIGHLY recommend it. Simply chop the cauliflower into pieces, drizzle with a little olive oil and toss cauliflower to coat. Spread it onto a cookie sheet and roast for 20 – 25 minutes at 375 degrees. Remember to turn the cauliflower after 10 minutes to ensure even cooking.

 

How do you roast garlic?

I also recommend roasting garlic while you are at it. You can roast garlic without using aluminum foil. In order to roast garlic, simply drizzle the cloves (skin on) with olive oil and place them on the cookie sheet with the cauliflower. Easy breezy and the taste is so amazing!

 

How do you make vegetable bouillon powder?

You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own and you know everything that is in it.  This bouillon is MSG free and low sodium. Click for the recipe.
