How long does cauliflower soup last in the fridge?

This soup will last a few days in the fridge. I think it tastes even better after a day in the fridge.

Can I freeze cauliflower soup?

Yes. This recipe freezes really well. I’d just recommend leaving out the coconut milk and adding it back in after you reheat it. Coconut milk has a tendency to separate once it’s been boiled. So just be aware that it could happen when you defrost and reheat.

  2. Then add the cauliflower. Sauté for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add chicken broth, onion, garlic, thyme and bay leaf and cover and pressure cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Allow to slow release before removing the cover (the red stopper should be down). Hit cancel then sauté.
  5. Remove the bay leaf and add the coconut milk and heat the coconut milk until just warm. You don’t want to boil the coconut milk.

Make sure to use AIP friendly coconut milk like this one.
This recipe is easy to freeze. Ideally you’d freeze it before you add the coconut milk.

    Mickey, since we cannot take Ibuprofen, what painkiller do you recommend?

    A few days ago, I took some Ibuprofen and I had a very bad flare-up.

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Britney! I can’t advise on medical issues, I’m sorry! I would suggest working with a practitioner like a naturopath that might be able to suggest some alternatives that will work with your history and situation. Good luck!

  • Rachel G says

    Hi! I’m sensitive to chicken. Do you think beef or pork broth would work?

  • Paulette says

    Looks great, but is there an alternative recipe without using a pressure cooker?

  • Caitríona O'Shaughnessy says

    How much oil? It isn’t listed in the ingredients

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Catriona, good catch! We’re reaching out to Beth to be sure, but I would guess a tablespoon or two.
