My post yesterday was all about the nutritional properties of cauliflower. I also mentioned that I would post 3 or more delicious cauliflower recipe this week. So, here is recipe #1, it’s creamy and OHHH so yummy! It was really cold outside the day I made this soup which seemed to make it taste even better, soup always taste better on cold days, right? I ate the soup for leftover the next day and I found that it tasted even better the following day. This recipe does not take much of your time or effort to make, so give it a try this week.

  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 4 teaspoons mild curry powder, more to taste
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion

  2. In a medium bowl, toss sunflower kernels with 1 teaspoon almond milk and 1 teaspoon of curry.
