This easy and delicious low carb cauliflower soup recipe is a great way to use up leftover ham! It’s also gluten free, dairy free, keto, Paleo, and even Whole 30 compliant!


  • 6 cups cauliflower florets (frozen is fine – abut 24 oz)
  • 6 cups ham stock or chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3 cups chopped ham
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 Tbsp butter (or ghee, bacon fat, or coconut oil)
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Combine the cauliflower, stock, water, garlic powder, and onion powder in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender. Blend in the pot with an immersion blender (or remove to a large blender and blend in batches then return to the pan) until smooth. Stir in the ham, and thyme leaves and simmer another 10 minutes. Add the butter and apple cider vinegar. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Serve hot.
