Roasted Cauliflower & Fennel Soup

A creamy vegan soup made from the world’s healthiest foods!

It’s no surprise that cauliflower is considered by many health enthusiasts one of the healthiest foods in the world!  It has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, is rich in anti-oxidants and phytochemicals, all known to ward off cancer, heart disease, diabetes and brain disease. Plus, it helps us maintain a healthy weight or even lose excess weight.
And to top it off, the fennel used here adds to the health benefits of this soup due to its high content of fiber, potassium, folates and vitamin C just to name a few.
As you know, I love creating recipes that are not only delicious, but that are healthy and really good for our body. Which is how this recipe was born. That’s what I call a healthy-zesty recipe 🙂
