Turmeric reminds me of the golden sun. Living in California, one could say I’m partial to golden hues. The rhizome has long been touted for its medicinal benefits, specifically the compound curcumin, which contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, cruciferous cauliflower is a low-carb marvel, containing in one cup 77% of our daily vitamin C requirement. So while this soup is hearty, satisfying and excellent alongside a crisp green salad, I feel in some ways it’s a little California sun in every spoonful.
