Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. After a minute, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Put the cauliflower and asparagus in the pot, add the cayenne pepper, and season to taste with salt and black pepper. Cook for 4–5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Pour in the broth and bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the cauliflower is fully cooked, 5–8 minutes.
  4. Carefully transfer the soup to a blender and blend on high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. (Or use a handheld immersion blender to purée the soup directly in the pot.) Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt and black pepper if needed. The soup should be thick but still light. If it is too thick, thin it with a little more broth or water. Any leftover soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

    I made this soup for my fiancé and self for dinner. It has been a winner! Recipes like this and the green goddess soup make it soon easy to get in those veggies. Even a cup a day along with a green smoothie is making me feel so much better. My fiancé has become such a fan of eating clean and healthy like this with the help of advice from Dr. Hyman and Dr. A. Junger.

    A squeeze of lemon juice on an individual serving or a pat of grassfed butter or half a teaspoon of ghee makes this even more delicious!

    Thank you for being an advocate for health, Dr. Hyman!
