Easiest Ever Cauliflower Soup

I am LOVING this soup!  There is nothing that makes me more happy then quick, yet healthy meal ideas for my busy week.

Among being such a versatile veggie,  cauliflower is apart of the cruciferious vegetable family, it is a fibre and antioxidant powerhouse while also containing an important compound called Indole 3 Carbinol (I3C). “Cruciferous vegetables differ from other classes of vegetables in that they are rich sources of sulfur-containing compounds known as glucosinolates – some studies provide some evidence that diets rich in cruciferous vegetables are associated with lower risk of several types of cancer.”*

So eat up and ENJOY!
