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.
