Potato Apple Soup with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola (Grain-Free)

Potato Apple Soup with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola (grain-free)

I’m over at The Nourishing Gourmet this week sharing a twist on traditional potato soup!

This rustic potato soup is delicately sweet, with caramelized onions and local apples, topped with savory gorgonzola. Not only is it nourishing-to-the-max with chicken bone broth, but it’s quick to put together and very frugal for even the tightest budget! This soup is simple enough for a busy weeknight meal (it has been devoured by my three year old son multiple times this week), but also has a touch of elegance with the addition of gorgonzola cheese in place of a traditional cheddar.

We’re officially in “soup season” as I like to call it. My crockpot is bubbling every week with homemade nourishing bone broth, and my freezer is always stocked with a few quarts for when I need it. Traditional bone broth has an abundance of health benefits ranging from helping intestinal disorders to the common cold (Sally Fallon, Nourishing Traditions, page 116-117). My husband and I have eaten a warm mug of broth, lightly salted, often when we felt we were coming down with a cold – and it really seemed to help!
