My sister’s sick. My brother in law is sick. Everyone on Snapchat is sick. It’s that weather change y’all. It will get you. Our bodies just can’t seem to keep up with the world, and all at once we are sick in unison. BUMMER. Well, I thought I’d concoct a little anti-sickness/healing tonic in the form of a soup. This soup is not only gonna be REALLY REALLY great for boosting your immune system, but I guarantee that it’s gonna have more flavors than almost any soup ever. (Or your money back.) HA. Gotta love free recipes!
Anywhooo, I love this soup because it’s got a big ole kick of ginger, major creaminess from the coconut milk/potato/cauliflower, a nice rich saltiness from the amino acids, a brightness from the lemon, a sweetness from the maple syrup, and an umami flavor from the miso. Seriously, I’m very proud of the flavors I developed in this soup. Especially because of how easy it is to make! Seriously, just roast your potato and cauliflower then blend everything up! And voila – SOUP GALORE. Soup di jour. Soup once more. Soup for four. Okay you get it. It’s really good. Enjoy! And my fingers are crossed that you stay healthy!
