The end of the beginning {GAPS}

Well, our first week on the GAPS diet ends today. After having soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for seven days, everyone’s favorite is Creamy Cauliflower Meatball soup (well, actually, any kind of meatball soup)!

It’s so easy!

Ingredients:
1-2 heads cauliflower
garlic to taste
Stock (we like chicken)
1-2 lbs. ground meat (we like turkey)

To be GAPS legal, be sure to cut off all of the fibrous cauliflower stems. Put in pot with peeled garlic cloves and cover with stock. Boil until soft, then puree with an immersion blender.
Now for the meatballs. You can simply pinch off small pieces of ground meat (think bite size for children), or neatly roll them into balls. Bethany (age 13) makes the best, perfect meatballs!  Drop them into the soup base, which should be kept at a gentle boil (med heat). The meat will be cooked through after about 15 minutes.

Obviously this can be made more interesting by seasoning the meat and soup base. Right now we’re just keeping it simple with the four legal ingredients. Meatballs can be added to just about any soup base, but we found that they blow apart in the crockpot on high – which still leaves you with a tasty ground meat crumble soup!
