Creamy Cauliflower Soup

One thing we love about the cooler days is that its calls for soups! We love incorporating in season veggies in our soups as much as we can, as often times what’s in season is more abundant, nutrient dense, and more environmentally sustainable. One of these veggies is Cauliflower! Cruciferous veggies provide sulphur which is the base for metabolic action in our bodies, and sulphur is required for keratin which is needed for hair, skin, and nail health. Here's a wholesome and quick-to-make cauliflower soup recipe:



Ingredients:


Sourdough croutons:

- a few slices of sourdough bread (cut into cube size pieces)

- 1 garlic clove (chopped)

- drizzle of olive oil

- salt to taste (We used truffle salt)


Soup:

- One small or half of a cauliflower head, cut into florets

- 1 large onion (chopped)

- 1 carrot (chopped)

- 1 garlic clove (chopped)

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1 tsp paprika

- 1 tsp black pepper

- 1/2 tsp turmeric

- 1/2 tsp cinnamon

- 2 or 3 stems of lemon thyme

- 3 tbs nutritional yeast

- 1/4 cup cashews (that have been soaked in hot water for 1 hour)

- 1/2 of fresh lemon

- 2 tbsp olive oil

- 4 cups hot water


Instructions:


  1. In a small bowl mix your sourdough bread with the salt, garlic and olive oil. Place in a baking sheet on an even layer and put in a preheated oven for 10-15mins (at 400°F)

  2. In a large pot on medium heat, heat olive oil over medium heat, add onions. Cook until the onions have softened, about 5 minutes then add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes until fragrant.

  3. Add in paprika, turmeric, cinnamon, salt, the fresh lemon thyme (just the leaves), cashews, and pepper and cook for 1 minute, evenly coating the cashews, onion, and garlic.

  4. Add your carrots, cauliflower florets, stir and add 4 cups hot water. Cover with a lid and let the soup simmer on medium heat until vegetables are fully cooked.

  5. Add in the nutritional yeast and lemon juice and using a hand blender, blend the soup. Or alternatively place soup into a blender and blend until smooth.

  6. Serve with your sourdough croutons and enjoy!
