How better to spoil mom on Mother’s Day than give her a smooth, silky bowl of Spring Green Cauliflower Soup heavy on mood-boosting superfoods by light on calories.
This beautiful soup is loaded with cauliflower (of course!), zucchini, fennel, leeks and avocado with coconut milk, making it a gorgeous spring green color. It’s seasoned with just a hint of heat, lots of fresh herbs and ginger, saffron, turmeric and a hint of Chinese five spice.
While the Spring Green Cauliflower Soup is beautifully healthy, it tastes sinfully delicious, almost like it’s loaded with cream (which it’s not!). The pureed cauliflower and avocado give it the silky, creamy texture and flavor.
And it’s completely vegetarian. Even vegan if you use veggie stock in the place of the chicken stock.
This soup is easy for anyone to make, including dad and the kids. Everyone can have fun carefully chopping up all the tasty veggies. And for the final step, pour the soup carefully into a blender or food processor or use an immersion blender to puree the soup until it’s smooth.
Served hot or cold, the Spring Green Cauliflower Soup is great either way. Try topping with Parmesan croutons for wonderful added crunch.
And don’t be afraid to experiment. While I didn’t use carrots in this recipe, I can see them as a wonderful addition. Add you favorite veggies or leave out the ones you don’t. Play with the herbs and spices. And if you want to keep the costs down, skip the saffron and add a hint of paprika.
So whether you’re a mother or not, try the Spring Green Cauliflower Soup. It’s delicious, healthy and makes you feel fantastic when eating it.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms.
