Silky Cauliflower Soup with Hot Pepper-Herb Oil Drizzle

January 14, 2016

Cauliflower Soup
Author: Lily Mazzarella
I think cauliflower has gotten short shrift over the years. Its lumpy white appearance belies its versatility and health benefits: cauliflower has a very low glycemic index, and is packed with vitamin C, K, and folate. It contains sulfur compounds that support detox pathways, while its abundant flavonoids support the cardiovascular system and help prevent oxidative damage. This delicious soup allows it to shine!

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive or coconut oil
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 tsp pink Himalayan or sea salt
1-3 garlic cloves, preferably roasted, and minced
1/2 large head cauliflower (about 1 pound) chopped into small florets (use white “stem” portion, too)
4-6 cups broth
1/3 cup water + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
¼ tsp freshly ground nutmeg—more to taste
Freshly ground white pepper (this is milder than black pepper; you can use either)
Extra salt to taste
Grass-fed Collagen or Pea Protein

For the hot pepper-herb drizzle:
2 tsps minced chives
1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tsp warm or hot pepper flakes
½ tsp salt (optional)
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and salt, cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and 1/3 cup water + apple cider vinegar
combo. Cook, stirring, until liquid is almost completely evaporated, 3 to 5 minutes.

Stir in cauliflower and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until cauliflower is soft, 15-20 minutes.

In batches, blend soup until very smooth, at least 3 minutes per batch (or, if you’d like a few florets in your soup, blend 2 batches and leave the last chunky). Stir together and season to taste with pepper, salt, and nutmeg.
Add your protein source—collagen or pea protein—now, about 1 tbsp for each cup of soup.

The Drizzle: Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat gently over low to medium heat until mixture becomes fragrant. Garnish with a generous drizzle of herb oil.

In a small saucepan, gently warm extra virgin olive oil, pepper flakes, chives, salt and parsley until fragrant. Drizzle over soup and enjoy!

B complex

Love the b complex, couldn’t find it elsewhere easily

Yes, this dries up poison oak.

I tried it after the rash did not go away for 2 weeks. It rapidly retreated, and gone.

LOVE!

Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

Astaxanthin

This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.
