Easy Vegan Cauliflower Stew (with Turmeric & Coconut) to Nourish the Soul

Soups are one of my favorite recipes to make and eat! They are easy, filling and a great way to consume a variety of nutrient-dense ingredients such as veggies, herbs and spices. This creamy vegan cauliflower stew is made with coconut milk, chickpeas, cauliflower, turmeric, ginger and additional nourishing ingredients.

Health Benefits of Key Ingredients:


Turmeric contains Curcumin which is a powerful antioxidant that aids in overall health. Curcumin also has anti-inflammatory properties. Just remember that Curcumin is best absorbed when eaten with black pepper!

Coconut Milk

Coconut milk contains healthy plant-based fats known as medium-chain triglycerides (or MCTs) that are filling and satisfying. MCTs may also help boost energy and physical performance.


Cauliflower contains anti-inflammatory compounds which aid in the fight against chronic low level inflammation. Cauliflower is also water and fiber dense, so that it’s filling without adding too many calories.


Lemons contain the immune boosting antioxidant vitamin C. Lemons also contain pectin, a fiber that helps you feel full, longer.
