This is a delicious warming soup that is a great side dish for any lunch or dinner.

It is full of nutrient benefits such as:

  • Vitamin A – carrots are very high in beta-carotene, a form of vitamin A that has shown specific benefits for eye health and also function as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
  • Vitamin C – Cauliflower is particularly high in vitamin C providing 73% of our daily value in 1 cup. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant and is required to produce collagen (the most abundant protein in our body) and to make certain neurotransmitters.

Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 green onions chopped
  • 5 medium carrots  chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup parsley

Instructions
 

  • Heat the olive oil in a large stock pot over medium-low heat. Add the green onions and sauté until softened. Add the carrot, cauliflower, water, thyme, salt and black pepper. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Let simmer for 20 minutes then add in the parsley and stir until wilted. Turn off the heat.
  • Purée the soup using a blender or handheld immersion blender. (Note: If using a regular blender, be careful. Ensure you leave a space for the steam to escape.) Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Ladle into bowls.

Notes

Bonus Tip: Set aside some cauliflower and carrots and roast in the oven for a garnish. Give it a gut-healing boost by using bone broth instead of water.
