Cauliflower Coconut Soup


This is such a lovely creamy soup, full of delicious, warming spices. Cardamon is one of my absolute favourites but buying it ground can sometimes be tricky, so whenever I spot it anywhere I stock up! The majority of ingredients for this recipe are from Aldi in the UK. It’s inexpensive and easy to buy everything you need.

I use a potato powder free bouillon as I avoid nightshade vegetables so that’s a store cupboard ingredient I always have to hand. I hope you find it as easy to make and delicious as I do!

    After years of suffering with guttate psoriasis, stomach issues and joint pain I am going to give this a go – I have already worked out that certain foods affect my skin & joints – potatoes make me ache more and alcohol makes my skin flare up – This sounds tough at first but I’m going to give it a go – It’s ringing bells and making sense – Book is on order 🙂

      The book is back in stock Monday / Tuesday so not long to wait! It sounds as though nightshades are an issue for you and red wine used to send mine crazy!! It sounds tough to begin with but the book will make it as simple as possible! Excited for you x

    Suffering for years now with psoriasis and as you have mentioned on number of occasions that I was told that food played no part in healing me. Book now ordered looking forward to trying out some of your recipes. Does meat and fish have to be avoided completely? Thanks Tim

      Hello Tim – I’m really excited you’ve ordered my book! Diet is absolutely key. Actually I ate small amounts of fish when I first healed my skin. Meat is acidic (explained in the book) and the body has to work super hard to digest it. Try to reduce it as much as possible to begin with. Hanna
