Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, or coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 knob ginger, skin off and finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons unrefined salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 4 cups vegetable or mushroom broth
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • Toppings:
  • Shitake mushrooms
  • Sliced brussels sprouts
  • Fresh corn
  • Fresh oregano

Instructions

  • In a large pot, heat oil over medium low heat.
  • Add onions, cook for 3 minutes, then add in garlic and ginger and cook for another minute.
  • Stir in salt, turmeric, oregano, red pepper flakes and black pepper and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add in beans and cauliflower, and cover with broth.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until cauliflower is cooked through but not mushy, about 20 minutes.
  • (While soup is cooking, cook the vegetables you will use to put on top of the soup, in the skillet with a little olive oil, salt and pepper)
  • Turn off heat, add in lemon juice.
  • Allow to cool slightly and carefully blend the soup, preferably with an immersion blender, until silky smooth.
  • Divide soup between bowls, garnish with vegetables and fresh herbs if you like, and serve.

Notes

If you are using a blender, the turmeric in the soup will stain your blender. As soon as you are done blending, remove soup from blender and wash blender right away with soap. It may take a few washes to get rid of the colour although some of the color may remain. If you have an immersion blender, use it instead.
