The donations are rolling in for the 2017 edition of From Scratch Cooking, our annual gluten-free and dairy-free e-cookbook for charity. We are certainly on our way to raising $10,000 for Community Food Centres Canada – thank you to those who have already bought a copy.
Today, we want to share one of the From Scratch Cooking recipes with you. It’s an incredibly simple creamy cauliflower + carrot soup recipe from culinary nutrition expert Abigail Hopkins. You’ve seen Abigail on this blog before, sharing up her healthy pizza making tips and her amazing sweet potato + Brussels sprouts winter salad.
You may also know her from her menu planning biz, That Clean Life, which creates nutritious + yummy recipes, grocery lists and meal prep plans to take the stress out of eating well. Or maybe you’ve read the interview she did in Vogue Magazine about non-dairy milks. In short, Abigail is total pro at recipe creation and food photography.
This vegan cauliflower + carrot soup recipe is easy to make and will warm your soul. For some extra oomph, set aside some cauliflower and carrots and roast them in the oven for garnish. You won’t regret it and we bet this one will become part of your regular meal repertoire.
