When my digestion is out of sorts I prepare this soup. The other evening my digestive system was feeling quite tender and vulnerable I craved something soothing, easy to digest, something that would warm and nourish my tender stomach.
I hope that this will nourish you as much as I feel nourished by it. I have made and enjoyed it three times hence.
Cauliflower Balm for Winter Days
5 cups pure water
2 pinches cumin seeds
2 pinches aseofetida
2 pinches fennel seeds
2 pinches ginger powder
3 pinches turmeric powder
1 pinch ground black pepper or long black pepper
4 cups cauliflower florets
2 pinches celtic sea salt
1 generous teaspoon ghee
Let the water boil with all of the spices for 4-5 minutes. Add the cauliflower florets and also some of the green leaves surrounding the cauliflower. Make sure to take the leaf away from the thick stem.
Cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes. Test with a fork to ensure the cauliflower is tender.
Pour all into a blender, add ghee and blend.
Serve plain, or garnish with fresh sunflower or mung sprouts or with grated raw cauliflower.
