Are you looking for a simple and delicious recipe to promote digestion, reduce inflammation, and keep you warm for these last few weeks of winter? If so, look no further!
Today’s recipe is packed with nutrients, anti-inflammatory agents, and even calcium (yes calcium!) Who would have thought that a simple roasted cauliflower soup would be the perfect delivery system for health?
If you remember (or having simply been following WTAF since Day 1) you’ll notice a roasted cauliflower soup was one of the first recipes I ever posted:
Clearly, my photography skills were lacking. Not that they’re amazing today by any means (I still use my iPhone). But when I first started WTAF, I’ll admit I was totally clueless.
Flash forward to today, and my cooking has come a long way.
But enough about my personal growth story. At the end of the day, I know everyone visits the site to learn about new healthy recipes and check out some to-die-for food porn.
About Today’s Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients
What’s so anti-inflammatory and awesome about today’s soup? Check out these fantastic ingredients and their medicinal benefits:
- Bone Broth—Bone broth has been all the rage these days, and for good reason. While I’m not sure bone broth is a panacea for every ailment out there (as it’s been advertised in recent trends), I definitely think there are some gut benefits to it. Bone broth can help heal a leaky gut and soothe an inflamed digestive system. Bone broth is also a rich source of calcium, meaning if you have a hard time getting enough of it in your diet, you can certainly use bone broth to supplement calcium consumption.
- Almond Milk—If you have a dairy allergy, finding a good dairy substitute might be hard to come by. I love the consistency and flavor of unsweetened almond milk, and find that it works great in this recipe. Depending on the brand, some almond milks can give you almost half your daily value (DV) of calcium. If you also have a nut allergy, however, don’t be afraid of trying a different substitute. As long as you purchase something unsweetened/unflavored you should be fine.
- Turmeric—Turmeric has long been known as an anti-inflammatory agent in Ayurvedic medicine. Whether you suffer from joint pain, digestive issues, or other inflammatory conditions, turmeric is worth a shot. This soup uses a moderate amount of turmeric that doesn’t overpower the soup, but still provides the medicinal benefits.
