Creamy Cauliflower and Turnip Soup

I love experimenting with vegetables and cauliflower is one of my favourites due to it's anti inflammatory properties.  It has such a mellow flavour (some might call it bland) but the trick is to spice it up when time is right and get those florets tap-dancing in your mouth.  Cumin, cinnamon and coriander go well with cauliflower and it's fabulous in Indian cuisine.

This creamless "Creamy Cauliflower and Turnip Soup" hits the spot for a chilled out night in and although earthy and mild in flavour still manages to be melt-in-the-mouth sweet and creamy.  With a couple of  half cauliflower heads in the fridge which had honestly seen better days and some turnips on the turn I turned around this heart-warming healthy soup in no time at all. It's rich and satisfying and beats commercially made soup any day.

  5. I didn’t have any celery, but it still turned out great. My 2 year old gobbled it down too. I had never thought to put Nutritional Yeast in soup. It was perfect.
