Ingredients

  • 12 Ounces cauliflower florets, or 1 large head of cauliflower, chopped
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1 large yellow onion, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch thick pieces
  • 1/4 Teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 packet powdered greens, such as ALOHA Daily Good Greens
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 heaping handfuls of chopped, destemmed kale
  • 4 Cups vegetable broth
  • 1 Teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons plain yogurt of choice for a creamier, heartier soup. This is not necessary if you want a lighter meal.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Place the cauliflower, garlic, and onion on a baking sheet; drizzle with two tablespoons of oil and sprinkle the thyme and cayenne on top.

Roast until lightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes. If the garlic begins to brown too quickly removed it from the pan sooner.

Toss veggies halfway through cooking. 

While the cauliflower is roasting, place the broth in a blender or food processor. Add the kale, leftover oil, lemon, salt, and yogurt if desired. Blend well.

Remove the veggies from the oven. Carefully add them to the kale broth and purée until smooth and consistent. Add a little water if it is too thick. 

Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with kale and cauliflower if desired.

Cauliflower Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Cauliflower Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
