Determining whether a meal is healthy can be complicated depending who you ask. In this case, however, there isn’t much to debate. The primary ingredients of this soup (cauliflower, kale and avocado) are all nutritional powerhouses and PCOS-fighters. By pureeing vegetables like cauliflower you can achieve a creamy soup without dairy or flour. In addition, unlike many soups this recipe is very low in sodium. Roasting the cauliflower, garlic and onion first helps achieve a richer flavor (and makes your home smell really good!).
- 1 cauliflower head, broken into florets
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped into large chunks
- 4 whole garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil (& extra to drizzle as garnish)
- 1/4 tsp thyme
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 4 cups water (approx.)
- A few handfuls of kale torn into chunks, organic if possible
- 1 avocado, chopped
- salt to taste (I didn’t add any)
The full recipe with instructions can be found in my vegan recipe eBook.
- cauliflower = anti-inflammatory, low on the glycemic index, & contains sulforaphane which improves blood pressure, kidney function and may prevent cancer
- avocado = helps lower LDL “bad” cholesterol, low on the glycemic index, high in fiber, & high in B-complex vitamins which combat stress
- kale = anti-inflammatory, high in fiber, & high in calcium which is important for egg maturation and follicle development
- garlic = helps lower cholesterol, an antibiotic, & blood cleanser which relaxes blood vessels for easier blood flow
- onion = promotes liver detoxification, improves digestion & is high in chromium which helps maintain healthy blood glucose levels

You could always add more avocado in and you may not notice the kale or cauliflower as much!
Great healthy idea ! Sometimes it can be difficult getting my kids to eat more vegetables, especially my son. I would definitely try this out , thanks!
This sounds like my kind of soup…so yummy! And the colour!! Gorgeous!
Thank you so much! It is great warm or cold.
Oh wow, what a combination. That looks delicious!
Thank you! Sometimes sporadic combos work out amazingly!
I love the idea of roasting the cauliflower for the soup. Thanks for the suggestion.
I throw pretty much anything in soup, but this combo sounds so good and something that would never have met my kitchen. That is until now! The flavour of roasted cauliflower is so good in soup! Yum 😀
I love homemade soup for the very reason that there is less sodium. I never thought to purée cauliflower, so I’m looking forward to trying this. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Wow this looks utterly delicious and healthy at the same time!
I would never have thought to add avocado to a soup. I am going to give this a try.
Wow this is very creative! I didn’t even know that avocado’s go well with cauliflower, never would’ve been able to come up with this one myself! I’m currently in a bit of a soup making phase so I’ll be making this one for sure
Oh soup is wonderful especially with the cold weather this looks delicious. Thanks so much for sharing.
This is as healthy as you can get, and it looks delicious too! Great recipe 🙂 xo

This sounds so delicious! I’ll admit, I’ll pretty much eat anything with avocado, but the kale and cauliflower are what intrigue me!
oh wow this just looks incredible! I will have to make this too soon
Looks good and I love the addition of kale! I’m always looking for ways to incorporate more kale into our lives.
This looks so tasty! My husband usually makes the soup in our house, but I bet he’d be pretty happy if I made him this one 🙂
