This soup is one of my signature recipes and is known among my friends lovingly as “Powerful Healing Cauliflower Soup.” Many of my family and friends have been the grateful recipients of a pot of this creamy healing cruciferous vegetable soup overflowing with vitamins, minerals and anti inflammatory goodness. This soup never fails to bring comfort, a satisfied belly, and hopefully healing to whomever is lucky enough to receive it.
