Roasted Garlic Soup {GAPS, Primal/Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free}

Roasted Garlic Soup Follow Me on Pinterest

To the chief cook and bottle washer,


Today, I bring you one of my favorite creamy, cold weather soups. Delight of delights, it is also adaptable for the GAPS Introduction Diet. (For those of you who don’t know, and want to know about this healing protocol click here)

Note to the chef…it is hard to keep my mitts off the roasted components long enough to get them made into their creamy version…they are that good. It is helpful to double this portion if your kitchen is regularly invaded by “pickers”.

Savor and thrive,


P.S. To make this GAPS Intro Diet friendly, simmer your lightly roasted vegetables for 20 minutes in broth or water, strain and puree. Use fresh basil, rather than dried.

    This recipe looks delicious AND it fits the paleo autoimmune protocol. So, thank you! I just started a weekly Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable through my blog, and I would love it if you linked up this recipe. I’m trying to expand resources for the AIP community. Here’s the link:

    Hello Eileen,

    Hi, found your blog through the weekly round-up and this soup looks fantastic. We love roasted cauliflower over here. I’d like to suggest that you add a pinterest button to your site. I would like to pin this. You could get a lot more exposure that way. Sorry, I don’t have a blog and don’t know how to actually add one, just thought I’d offer you that feedback. :)

      Hi Pamela,

      You are absolutely right! My Pinterest plug-in is temporarily deactivated while some website work is done, but I’ll have it up again soon.
      Thanks for communicating how important it is :)

    regarding onions – just add what I think best?
    Thank you

    • Melanie Christner January 23, 2014 at 1:53 pm #

      Are you asking about what type of onions to use? My first choice would be basic yellow or sweet onions…but I generally use whatever I have on hand :)

    What if you do not have an immersion blender? Would a food processor work? Thanks!

    • Melanie Christner February 9, 2014 at 7:51 pm #

      Hi Amanda,

      Thanks for the question…yes, a food processor should work fine. :)

      Hi Amanda,

      Thanks for sharing! I’m glad you liked it :)

    Is this a freezer friendly soup?

    • Melanie Christner March 11, 2015 at 1:19 pm #

      Hi Amanda,
      I haven’t tried freezing this particular soup, but I would assume so.

      Thanks for your question :)

    this is the second time I have made this. Amazing! I only used half a cauliflower this time because I like it a little more brothy. and it may be a cheat but I added a little white truffle oil this time. Amazing! Thank you.

      Great, Lynann! I’m glad you are enjoying it :)

      Thank you,
