Every time I see another picture of a recipe for a creamy cauliflower soup, I get the urge to run right home and make it. This weekend I actually did it and I think I came up with a healthy option as well as a delicious one.
This recipe makes a pretty good sized pot of soup and you will need two heads of cauliflower. One you cook ahead of time and purée right into the broth to become the thickener of the soup instead of cream. The other is chunked up to give it some texture and bite and the entire thing is flavored with a little hint of curry spice that packs a big punch of flavor.
This soup is one you can have seconds and thirds of without feeling guilty so eat up my friends!
I am writing this post also in honor of Food Day, which will be here on October 24.
Food Day is a nationwide celebration of a movement towards sustainable, affordable and healthy food that builds all year and culminates in a day of action on October 24 every year.
What you can do to be pro-active:
*Plant a vegetable garden in your backyard or even start a potted garden with easy-to-grow foods like lettuce, herbs or tomatoes
*resolve to and put into action a plan to introduce healthier foods into your diet. Start with something small like incorporating one or two raw or cooked fresh vegetables into you and your family’s lives.
This is not just a great cause but should become an added benefit to you and your family to bring health and an active lifestyle for years to come.
