Curried Cauliflower Soup

Low calorie, vitamin rich veggies are a great way to manage your cholesterol, blood pressure and weight.  Cauliflower contains vitamins B6, K and C which may protect you against stroke, asthma and diabetes. It also has a nice amount of fiber and folate. With all of this great stuff going on cauliflower still finds time to increase your liver’s ability to neutralize toxic substances.

Curry Powder is a nice warming spice and is known to reduce inflammation which may also protect you against heart disease.

With all of this great heart healthy stuff going on in this soup I had to try it.  Here is the recipe:

2 T olive oil

1 small onion chopped

1 granny smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped

1 Tablespoon curry powder

1 clove garlic

1 large head cauliflower chopped

4 cups vegetable broth

1 teaspoon of agave nectar or honey

1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar

Heat oil in large pot over medium high heat.  Saute onion until tender. Add apple, curry powder and garlic saute for 2-3 more minutes.  Add cauliflower and broth. Cover and reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for about 20 minutes.  Turn the burner off and let cool for a few minutes, add vinegar and honey and blend using an immersion blender, blender or Vitamix.

Serve with really crusty bread.

It was like warm yummy love in a bowl.
