Unless you’re living in a place like San Diego, you’re probably still craving a warm bowl of soup to fend off the chilly air! This Cauliflower Passion Soup is fun (just look at the vivid color!), it’s easy to create and makes the perfect health companion to snowy days. Bursting in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, cauliflower contains sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that’s been linked to destroy cancer cells and improve blood pressure. This cruciferous wonder also boasts anti-inflammatory properties, which helps strengthen the immune system. Sip slowly and relish the amazing flavors!
Q: Especially for people who are just getting into raw-food eating, cauliflower soup might seem a bit bland. What makes this soup anything other than bland?
The different flavors in this soup treat your taste buds in different ways. The potatoes add a thicker, creamy texture while the apple cider vinegar adds the perfect subtle tang. The beets also add something unexpected. This soup is just full of surprises!
Q: Let’s talk aesthetics. How can we make this soup presentable for, say, a dinner party?
I like to save a few pieces of steamed cauliflower and brown them slightly in the pan that I used for the shallots and garlic. They make a beautiful and delicious garnish.
Q: If you’re looking to watch the fat content, what can you do to decrease it?
You can always subsitute the coconut oil with veggie broth as you sauté the vegetables. It’s just as delicious, but a lot of people do love the hint of coconut flavor. It’s up to you!
