Cauliflower Soup

This cauliflower soup was made in my quest to combine healthy food with a joyful taste experience and according to my wife I was successful :-)! Cauliflower contains vitamin C and vitamin K which is supposed to help against bone loss.

It helps to lower blood pressure, detoxes the body, strengthens the immune system and assists to reduce the risk of cancer. That are a lot of amazing health benefits and a good argument to have cauliflower more often on the menu.
