This cauliflower and kale white bean soup is an easy recipe to prepare when you need a nutritious and hearty meal yet full of flavour.
We have blended cauliflower and butter beans into a velvety soup and then topped it with kale lemon pesto for the ultimate vegan superfood bowl. Blitzing kale into pesto is also a great way to eat more greens.
Soaked cashew nuts add creaminess and richness to this soup, and a source of fibres too. Together with butter beans, these nuts also provide plenty of proteins.
Make sure you have a serving of grains, like wholemeal bread, with this dish to eat complete vegan proteins, meaning you'll cover all the essential amino acids.
If you're on a weight loss plan or looking for a detox recipe, this low-calorie recipe is definitely a must-try. A single serving provides less than 500 calories, and it covers 40% of your recommended daily intake (RDI) for proteins and 65% for fibres. These nutrients fill you up and curb cravings, thus helping you eat less. Awesome!
We also love cauliflower and kale because they are incredibly high in antioxidants, and they promote those critical detox processes in your body. They also provide precious vitamins and vitamins, as well as being low in carbs and high in fibres.
Adding mustard to this soup is our little secret, and it's only for the extra flavour. Mustard can boost your absorption of a precious disease-fighting antioxidant found in cauliflowers, called sulforaphane.
