Low Carb Tomato "Cauliflower Rice" Soup



Roasted tomatoes, sweet carrots, and hot pepper to taste, makes a delightful soup that is sure to warm you up on a damp chilly day.

Healthy and Easy

This delicious rich orange soup is easy to make and provides an excellent variety of health building nutrients, antioxidants and vital fiber! For the record it's vegan, parve, nut free, soy free and gluten free as well- perfectly allergy friendly!



For this recipe I roasted a pint of organic cherry tomatoes and 4 medium to large organic carrots. Roasting enhances the flavors and brings out the vegetable's natural sweetness. I then added my roasted vegetables and a container of organic vegetable broth to my blender and blended until completely smooth. 



At this point I switched into shortcut mode and added a half jar of Aldi's organic salsa ( I love the flavor of this salsa) which comes in a jar and has three varieties: mild, medium and hot! Your choice!

My final step is to add a cup of frozen cauliflower rice to the pot, bring to a boil to cook the cauliflower rice and serve-

It has the consistency, appearance and even taste of a tomato rice soup without the carbs!

And cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable which research is indicating is a powerful anti cancer vegetable.




The quality of the vegetables, the taste of your salsa, the depth of your vegetable broth will all make a difference in taste of the soup- I have noted my preferences -

  4. Adding salsa to soup is a great trick! I enjoy adding corn salsa or corn-and-bean salsa to boxed tomato soup for a quick zinger of a soup. But using fresh ingredients as you do sounds even better.

  5. I've been unsuccessful with cauliflower rice, which is a shame because we love cauliflower. I think we have too high of expectations. I might give this soup a try, though; perhaps it would work better for us this way.

  6. Beth,
    Try the frozen cauliflower rice- not fresh- I use a skillet , spray with olive oil, add frozen cauliflower rice and heat until well heated.
