Easy Cauliflower soup recipe to make at home
How to make this recipe! Your recipe for cauliflower and coconut soup. Simply delish.
This is one yummy smooth and nourishing soup. Feeding our microbiome and encouraging balanced digestion and gut health is always a priority. On. the cold winter days when we have the fire going, resting up after a big week and needing light foods this is the perfect meal.
Here's whats so healthy about Cauliflower other than its impressive microbiome support?
- Cauliflower is a source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals and inflammation. Cauliflower contains sulforaphane, a plant compound that has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. It also contains vitamin C, which boosts your immune system and helps prevent infections.
- Cauliflower is high in choline. Choline is an essential nutrient that supports your brain function and development. It helps produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood, memory, and learning. Choline also helps maintain the structure and integrity of your cell membranes.
- Cauliflower is rich in fibre. Fibre is important for your digestive health and may lower the risk of several chronic diseases. Fibre feeds the beneficial bacteria in your gut, which reduce inflammation and improve your immunity. Fibre also helps you feel full and control your appetite, which may prevent overeating and obesity.
- Cauliflower may support hormonal balance. Cauliflower contains indole-3-carbinol (I3C), a plant compound that acts as a plant estrogen and may regulate your hormone levels. I3C may help prevent estrogen-related cancers, such as breast and prostate cancer, by modulating the activity of estrogen receptors.
- Cauliflower is low in calories and carbohydrates. Cauliflower is a great vegetable to include in your diet if you want to lose weight or manage your blood sugar levels. One cup of raw cauliflower has only 27 calories and 3.5 grams of carbohydrates. Cauliflower can also be used as a substitute for rice, potatoes, or flour in various recipes, such as cauliflower rice, mashed cauliflower, or cauliflower pizza crust.
Heres our recipe for Nourishing Cauliflower and coconut soup.
1. Take 1 whole cauliflower and break away the florets so that you have lots of small pieces. Add this to a large saucepan, and then add all other ingredients to same pot.
2. Peel and cut up two brown onions.
3. Peel and cut five cloves garlic
4. Add in 2 tablespoon of coconut oil
5. Add your liquid which will be either vegan broth or vegetable stock or for a bone broth version add in bone broth liquid to cover the vegetables. ( I used a vegan stock powder at 1 tablespoon, plus i topped it up with boiling water)
6. Add salt and other spices and herbs that you want to add in for unique flavour. ( I didn't add anything)
7. I added 1/2 cup of coconut powder to my recipe, if you are using tinned coconut cream please take that into a coconut for your liquid component of the recipe.
8. Bring to boil and simmer for 40 minutes until all ingredients are well cooked and super soft. Then blend with your blender stick in the pan and serve.
This recipe is super creamy and delicious. You can make the vegan version as we did today or you can make use of your bone broths here and add extra proteins and fats such as ghee or olive oil if you need extra fat content.
This recipe is ideal for a mono soup cleansing day. It's great to break a water fast or to go into a deeper cleanse. We love the purity and the clean, easily digested energy of this super soup.
We still have a couple of places left for Sundays long table wellness day if you feel the energy to join us. The theme is reboot and reset. Details here.
Also a massive THANK YOU to the good folks at Qld Garden expo last weekend . We loved attending and had a lovely time checking out all the awesome gardening products and talks.
We have an exciting collaboration coming up with Eumundi Markets in September that we will share with you soon once we have the final details in place.
Thanks so much for your support of Medicine Room and our herbal services and products.
This pic is me with my Granddaughter Tulsi last week making some herbal tea for her to take home. She wanted a blend of Liquorice root ( her fav) with Tulsi ( her name sake) and Rose petals.... She makes it with 1 teaspoon tea to 200ml boiling water, lets it sit in the pot for twenty minutes ( to cool and infuse) and then she loves a blob of honey added !
