Cleaning-Up-Pinterest-Graphic_revLoaded No Potato Soup with garnish SO Yummy and Healthy

This week we are cleaning up Pinterest! We all see certain recipes repinned over and over again. Full disclosure here, there are times when Jessica and I see the things our friends are pinning and cringe. Ugh, while I’m sure they taste great, there are so many completely unhealthy recipes floating around Pinterest. We are taking some of those top recipes and creating a clean and healthy alternative. I know I know, sometimes it’s hard to resist repinning the beautifully photographed and yummy looking recipes for the “best cookies” in the world. And, of course, we should all makes that recipe, once. But, for everyday meals we should stick to the healthier side of Pinterest. So, with that in mind, we are taking the week to “Clean Up Pinterest.

I’m getting started with this recipe I found on a Huffington Post article –  Pinterest’s 15 Most Popular Pins of All Time. This beauty was number 4. Here is a link to the pin http://www.pinterest.com/pin/200480620881860689/ You’ll see it’s been pinned more than 58,000 times! It’s a recipe for Loaded Potato Soup from a restaurant at Disneyland. I’m sure it is supremely delicious. But, as our regular readers know, we have worked hard to eliminate white potatoes from our diet. Potato soup is something I miss dearly. I make our whipped cauliflower a lot which does help fulfill my potato craving, but oh how I miss the soup.

The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to peel potatoes! You start by sauteing the veggies along with a slice of uncured turkey bacon, then boil the cauliflower. Add them all together, then mix in some coconut milk and chicken or vegetable broth. Blend it all together and you have a creamy loaded no potato soup that could fool just about anyone!
