06 Jan Detox Recipe: Cream-less Roasted Cauliflower Soup
Whether or not you’re doing Flex’s New Year Detox, Tryphena Chia has an easy but satisfying recipe that will calm your digestive system in between festive meals
Harness the power of the extremely healthy vegetable that is the cauliflower with our recipe of the month, one of Tryphena Chia’s go-to detox dishes. This lusciously creamy, yet cream-free, cauliflower soup was adapted from Cookie and Kate’s cheese-optional recipe.
“The soup is creamy and yummy without the need of any cream or milk,” says Tryphena. “Perfect for pre or post detox. I like it because it is easy to prepare and it is very filling. You can have it on its own or with a salad.”
