The thought of a soup made entirely from cauliflower may not sound appealing, but trust me, it is delicious. This Cauliflower soup is packed with flavour, extremely nourishing and the crunchy walnut croutons make it fun to eat. I challenge you to try and resist eating the croutons before using them in the soup, it really is tough!

Cauliflower has made a splash in the foodie world, most known as a low-carb alternative to starchy vegetables, grains and legumes. However, in this soup, cauliflower is the star of the show. Shine bright cauliflower, you do you!

This soup is also extremely adaptable to most dietary needs. For a dairy free or paleo option, substitute the cheddar for a cashew cheese or for vegetarian or vegan option use a vegetable broth instead of the bone broth concentrate.
