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!
