Fry pieces of bacon (or facon) in a pan.
Add in small bouquets of broccoli and kale as well as diced apple (with its peal – that’s where the healthy pectin is at)
Sprinkle on some cinnamon and put a lid over for a few minutes for the veggies to become brighter green and slightly soft. This takes roughly 3-4 minutes.
Add a cup or 2 dl grated cauliflower and 1 dl of full fat cream. Bring to boil and lower temperature immediately, this takes 2 minutes maximum. Sprinkle some grated cheese or Parmesan on top. Serve with e.g smoked salmon or chicken.

This recipe came about as I blended a few leftovers.  My warm kale, bacon, apple salad with some ingredients for a cauliflower risotto.

Cauliflower soup with bacon

2 yellow onions
2 Garlics
Butter
1 cauwliflower head
Sambal olek
Chicken stock
Water
Double cream
Philadelphia cream cheese

Add a good chunk of butter to a big pot. Add the chopped onions and garlic cloves. Let them roast slowly.
Add in the coarsely chopped cauwliflower and keep stirring. Adds few cups of chicken stock, some sambal olek, pepper and let simmer.
Finally add the cream and mix the soup with a hand held food processor or something.
Add in the cream cheese and potentially some parsley right during serving.
I added some pine nuts, but walnuts may be even nicer. Do not heat walnuts too much and the parsley as little as possible.
