Cauliflower and Sunchoke Soup

This soup is a winner – it’s comforting with a creamy texture and earthy flavor, but there’s no fat in it whatsoever, which means no guilt, no regrets and no reason to hold off that second helping!

Sometimes also called Jersualem artichokes, sunchokes are high in fiber and iron, and because the primary carbohydrate in them, innulin, has very little effect on blood sugar they are a good choice for diabetics.  They are refreshing and crunchy raw, but take on a scrummy sweetness when cooked. 

As a member of the cruiferous vegetable family, cauliflower is something of a superfood.  Besides being a versatile ingredient with applications in many varied recipes, Dr Michael Greger says in his book How Not To Die that it would be hard for me to say too many good things about cruifcers.  These vegetables do wonders for your health, from fighting cancer progression and boosting defenses against pathogens and pollutants to helping protect your brain, vision and more.  

What more encouragement would you need?
