It has been a cold, wet week so far and it feels like perfect soup weather! Soups are a great way to get loads of veggies in your guts without trying very hard. Make them on some bone broth and you get even more amazing health benefits like immune support, joint support, gut healing and reduction of inflammation. Cauliflower is from the same family as broccoli and cabbage, it contains many essential B-complex vitamins and loads of vitamin C. Cauliflower contains several anti cancer phyto-chemicals which have proven benefits against prostate, breast, cervical, colon, ovarian cancers. You could make a cream of broccoli version by substituting the cauliflower for broccoli & adding a couple of handfuls of baby spinach too.
1 carrot, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion, finely diced
Coconut oil to sauté
1 heaped tsp fresh ginger, grated
1 small head cauliflower, chopped roughly
1 cup coconut cream
2 lge zucchini, peeled and chopped into 1/4’s (you don’t have to peel them, I just didn’t want green soup this time)
1L stock (vegetable, chicken or your own homemade bone broth)
Salt & pepper to taste
Fresh thyme to serve
In a large pot sauté the onion, garlic, ginger & carrot in the coconut oil until the onion is translucent. Add the cauliflower, zucchini & stock & bring to the boil. Reduce to a low heat & simmer for about an hour. Use a stick mix to blend until smooth. Add coconut cream & salt & pepper & blend until combined. Serve with some fresh thyme. Easy as.
