Creamy Cauliflower Soup

DSC06099 1024x679 Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Along with broccoli and other cruciferous veggies, cauliflower and brussel sprouts are in the Brassica plant family and are widely known for containing high levels of disease fighting antioxidants called sulphoraphanes –  this group of antioxidants has been seen to inhibit the growth of cancer. Think about THAT the next time you turn your snout up at these guys.

This recipe is inspired by chef Tyler Florence, who combines cauliflower with brussel sprouts to make a creamy and heart warming soup for those bloody cold nights.

Colleen made this one and I stood by to call out ingredients and directions, and to take pictures of course. We left out the salmon roe and instead used capers. I don’t know about you, but salmon roe isn’t exactly lying around our kitchen.

Florence explains that any vegetables can be used in place of the cauliflower here making it quite the versatile soup.
