Benefits Of Cauliflower

Cauliflower  is one of those underrated vegetables that are actually super versatile and work well as the main ingredient or as a side. It belongs to the same family as kale, broccoli, and cabbage and is very nutritious.

For instance, Cauliflower is a good source of vitamin C and K, which promote a healthy immune system, as well as bone health and wound healing.

It’s also rich in phytochemical and antioxidants, which both plays a role in supporting overall health and preventing chronic diseases.

Cauliflower is very versatile and can be used in so many ways, such as cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza crust, cauliflower “steaks”, whole roasted cauliflower, etc.

Why Use Cashews?

Cashews are used in the soup instead of the traditional cream or potatoes. It makes the soup dairy-free. Additionally, the cashews help to make it creamy and smooth, which is a texture appreciated by most. Cashews also add great extra nutrients.
