This unique flavored soup was actually made by accident but turned out to be really yummy!

Rosemary is one of my favorite spices! I absolutely love the taste, but it also has so many great health benefits. It’s been shown to fight diseases and boost our immune system, improve our mood and our blood flow, and be a potent anti-inflammatory.

It’s milder in flavor so it could be served as a side to a ton of different foods.

Ingredients for Rosemary Cauliflower Walnut Soup:

  • Frozen cauliflower rice
  • Walnuts
  • Apple
  • Onion (I used a sweet onion)
  • Garlic cloves
  • Chicken broth
  • Rosemary
  • Nutritional yeast
  • Salt + pepper

Regarding nutritional yeast, this is a great, healthy option because it is one of the few nutritional yeast products that are non-fortified.

What does that mean? Basically, there are no added synthetic vitamins, as many of the nutritional yeasts sold at grocery stores include synthetic B12 and folate. Many believe that synthetic vitamins can be harmful to our health so I personally try to stick to natural sources of vitamins. But feel free to choose whatever option works best for you!

How to Make Rosemary Cauliflower Walnut Soup:

Start by preheating the oven, spreading the walnuts onto a baking sheet, and roasting them in the oven. Roasted walnuts give such a good, earthy flavor!

While that’s roasting, add the onion, garlic, and ghee (or other healthy oil of choice) to a large pot and sauté for a few minutes. Then add the frozen cauliflower rice and chopped apple and cook again, with the top on and mixing occasionally. Next, add the roasted walnuts and chicken broth, bring to a boil and let simmer.

Once that’s done, all you need to do is add the rosemary, nutritional yeast, and salt + pepper, and blend! You can use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a normal blender. If using a normal blender, it’s possible you may have to do two batches. Just be careful when blending soup in the blender…if it’s too hot the blender can get overheated and explode! I like to take the little hole out of the top of my Vitamix, or let it cool down a bit before blending.

Notes

This makes a runnier, slurpy soup. If you like it thicker, add less broth.

When blending soup in the blender, if it’s too hot the blender can get overheated and explode so be careful! I like to take the little hole out of the top of my vitamix, or let it cool down a bit before blending.
