Cauliflower, Almond & Turmeric Soup

Ingredients (Serves 4)

1 large cauliflower - Roughly chopped

30g organic coconut oil

1 large red onion - finely sliced

3 cloves garlic - finely chopped

2 tsp. turmeric

1/2 tsp. ground fenugreek

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

100g ground almonds

500ml bone broth or vegetable stock

200ml unsweetened almond milk

juice of 1 fresh lemon

roughly chopped almonds - to serve

salt and pepper to taste.

Directions

* Take the finely sliced onion, fry in the coconut oil in a large saucepan over a gentle heat for 10 minutes until softened. Now add the chopped garlic, fry gently for 2 minutes until you get the garlic aroma. Add in the turmeric, fenugreek, ginger and almonds, stir well.

* Add the chopped cauliflower, coat with the spice mixture then pour in the 500ml bone broth or stock, add a little more if necessary (remember you will be adding the almond milk later so don't drown it). Place the lid on the pan and simmer gently for 20- 30 minutes or so until the cauliflower has softened.

* Add in the almond milk and blend to your desired consistency. I kept it slightly textured by only blending up half the soup and leaving the rest nice and chunky.

* Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

* Serve with roughly chopped almonds and a drizzle of olive oil.

 Enjoy! x
