  1. Cook bacon until crisp.
  2. Once done cooking, save all the bacon fat and chop bacon into small pieces.
  3. At the same time as the bacon is cooking, use another pan to boil the cauliflower, onion, celery, and carrots in filtered water, enough to cover the vegetables.
  4. Once they are fork tender, strain out almost all the water.
  5. Pour the vegetables and a little of the water, into your blender, vitamix or food processor now also add the fresh garlic, scallion and parsley and some of the water and blend down until very smooth and creamy.
  6. Add your blended vegetable chowder along with the bacon pieces and all the bacon fat into a large saucepan along with more filtered water and/or the bone broth to desired consistency.
  7. Stir and let simmer for a few minutes.
  8. Add salt and your garnishes to taste.
  9. Enjoy!
  10. Optional: You can also add a can of coconut milk to make this chowder even creamier, yet still dairy free.
