Cream of Cauliflower Soup with Saffron

Saturday, 04 January 2014 09:19  by Jessica W.

This quick and easy soup has a short ingredients list and can be made a day ahead of time for an instant meal when needed. Saffron has a warming flavor and lends beautiful color to the soup. The cauliflower base is high in vitamin C, folate, fiber, anti-inflammatory antioxidants and many other important nutrients. This soup is a tasty way to start the year off right!

  • 2 cups low-salt chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely crumbled saffron threads
