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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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!
