In the Kitchen: Creamy Cauliflower Detox Soup

One resolution on my list this year is to eat meals that make me feel my best.  A book that has been crucial in this change is called “Go With Your Gut” by Robyn Youkilis.  Robyn provides delicious, healthy recipes but also information about diet that I have never heard before.  I really enjoy this book and the recipes she creates, so I wanted to share one with you with a little twist!

This creamy cauliflower soup is not only gluten & dairy free, but good for you and good for your gut!  If you are looking to get back on track with your diet after a crazy holiday season, this soup will fill you up and keep you warm inside!  To read more about this recipe, visit Robyn’s blog here.

Try a new soup this winter! Creamy Cauliflower Soup recipe on Lily & Val Living!

  1. – Set cashews to soak in a bowl of water from 5 to 20 minutes then rinse and drain. 20 minutes is best but 5 minutes works too!
  2. – In a large pot, warm the oil over medium heat.
  3. – Sauté the onion and garlic until they are tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. – Add the cauliflower, enough water to cover, the sea salt, and pepper. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and soft.
  5. – Transfer the soup to a blender, working in batches if necessary. Add the cashews.
  6. – Blend until smooth.
  7. – To add extra flavor to this recipe, I added the turmeric, chili powder and curry powder.
  8. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
Creamy and delicious, this cauliflower soup is perfect for your healthy diet!

With the spices added to this creamy soup, the aromas in my kitchen were amazing!  I loved the little bit of heat that the spices added, I think it made this simple soup extra special.

I’ve never tried a soup with a cashew nut base, but I really enjoy it!  It makes this soup creamy but not too heavy.  I also loved the flavor of the cauliflower mixed in!
