This week we are busy recipe testing for my upcoming 10 Day Detox, and this soup is a hit!
Cauliflower is a key Detox Superfood! It is a good source of fiber which helps to bind to toxins. It contains antioxidants that support Phase 1 liver detoxification along with sulfur-containing nutrients important for Phase 2 detox activities. The glucosinolates in cauliflower also activate detoxification enzymes.
3 tablespoons raw cashews
1/2 red onion, chopped
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 head cauliflower, chopped
4 cup Vegetable Broth or Chicken Broth
2-3 sprig fresh thyme leaves, (to taste)
1 teaspoon sea salt (more or less to taste)
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400F.
Place cashews in a bowl and cover with warm water. Set aside.
Toss the red onion, carrots, celery and cauliflower in oil and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes or until veggies are golden and the cauliflower and carrots are tender.
Drain the cashews and place them in a high-speed blender. Add roasted vegetables, thyme, and broth. Blend until completely smooth.
Season with sea salt, pepper, and thyme to taste.
Heat and enjoy!
