This curried cauliflower soup ticks all of those ‘comfort food’ boxes – it is hearty, thick, creamy, smells divine and the spices give us that extra kick of heat that our bodies so desperately want in the winter months. Albeit looking pretty bland and boring, Cauliflower actually contains amazing phytonutrients which help to activate our detox enzymes! They are also an excellent source of Vitamin C and manganese, as well as containing Vitamin K which acts as an anti-inflammatory. The toasted chickpeas on top not only add crunch, but also add a great vegetarian protein source to the dish.
