Vegan Corn Soup | Cauliflower Corn Chowder

20170401_143400

This is a healthier vegan version of my favorite childhood soup; Chamoru Corn Soup.

I added roasted cauliflower because it gives the soup a thick rich flavor – it also provides more nutrition and nourishment.

Cauliflower is rich in vitamin c, vitamin k, and folate. It also contains PROTEIN, magnesium (good for bone strength), and antioxidants!

Because there is no meat in the soup, I added potatoes!

Red potatoes are rich in vitamin c, potassium, niacin, and vitamin b6.

Studies are showing that a diet rich in animal protein contributes to not only diabetes, but heart disease and cancer as well. So be careful with your meat consumption if you have diabetes or if you’re pre-diabetic! -knowledge about your food is power 😊

This soup is toddler, pre-teen, and old lady approved! Haha!

I hope you enjoy it!

I added homemade croutons for my son who likes something crunchy in his soup!

To make croutons, just use any stale bread. Cube your bread. Add a little olive oil, garlic powder, and pepper.. then toss. Lay your cubed bread on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes or longer depending on how crunchy you like it.
