Cauliflower and coconut soup



The cauliflower is a nutritious vegetable as it is an excellent source of fibre, as well as Vitamin C and zinc, both crucial for strengthening the immune system, as well as a good source of the B vitamins biotin and folate. It also contains a phytochemical called sulforaphane, which helps the liver to produce enzymes that block cancer-causing chemicals from damaging the body.

This lightly spiced soup also contains coconut milk, which provides a creamy texture to the thick soup, and is a great way to enjoy this healthy vegetable.
