Cauliflower Leek Soup

Cauliflower Leek Soup | GoodGirlGoneGreen

Soup season has officially arrived with the return of fall but I have been in the kitchen souping up a storm for months. I am pretty sure my family is all souped out. Little do they know, this is just the beginning of all things soup related because there is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup on a cool crisp day!

I love this particular soup because of the addition of the hemp seeds for that nice protein punch. Personally, I don’t really like the taste of hemp seeds, but in this soup, you wouldn’t even know they are there. Sneaky. Sneaky. My husband just said as I was getting my recipe up “there are hemp seeds in the soup?”  If he didn’t notice, nobody will.

Tips and Notes

  • Make sure to soak the cashews prior to using.
