Ingredients

  • Nonstick Cooking Spray
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 4 large cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1/4 tbsp ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 4 cups all-natural chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 lbs carrots — you can use a bag of peeled baby carrots peeled and chopped into 1/2
  • 1 head cauliflower about 2 pounds, trimmed and broken into small florets
  • Sea salt & fresh ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh Italian parsley or scallions for garnish

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, and cook, stirring occasionally until golden brown, about 8 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic and spices and cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

  3. Add broth and water.

  4. Cover, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Add carrots and cauliflower.
