High in antioxidants, phytonutrients, fibre, potassium and B vitamins, cauliflower is a true superfood.

It is not only anti-inflammatory, but detoxifying and anti-aging, and it helps to reduce your risk for diseases caused by oxidative stress, such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer. The addition of turmeric, ginger and chilli to this soup, really turns up the anti-inflammatory punch, making it perfect for exercise recovery. Just divine served with a side of Gluten Free Sweet Potato Bread.

  • ½ cauliflower, floreted
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely diced
  • 3 cups bone broth/water
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric

  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh chilli, chopped
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 can organic coconut cream 

Method

  6. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
