This Cauliflower Pea Winter Soup has all the flavors of winter. It is a delicious warm bowl you can make for yourself and your family. This soup is so simple to make yet packed with earthy winter flavors.
Cauliflower is an underrated vegetable you can use on soups, to make them creamier. Last year I was obsessed with this Creamy Cauliflower Soup if you want the soup on more of a spicy side. Lately, I love using thyme in everything, so this recipe is more like a combination of simple seasonal vegetables and spices.
This soup is made with cauliflower, frozen peas, onion, garlic, thyme, and cashews. I used cashew nuts to make it creamier and rich in fibers but you can also use other nut milk like coconut or almond.
Because it is made with cashews, cauliflower and green peas it is rich in proteins and fibers.
