Here’s a great quick soup that is away from the normal creamed soups like red pepper or leak. Why don’t you try cauliflower soup?
Cauliflower has some great nutritional benefits, sometimes being called the world’s greatest food.
It has tons of vitamin C, B6, fiber and more!
Enjoy this on a cooler day for a nice warm-up meal!
