Thermomix pumpkin and cauliflower soup with a hint of spice

Thermomix pumpkin and cauliflower soup with spiceThis soup is awesome because it’s deliciously creamy thanks to the cauliflower and it’s a fantastic dose of nutrients.

Cauliflower and butternut pumpkin are full of cartenoids and so make a great cancer prevention/fighting duo. Cauliflower is also full of antioxidants, fiber and B vitamins, including folic acid. Butternut pumpkin is fantastic for digestion and provides a good dose of vitamins A and C, potassium and magnesium.

The little bit of spice gives it a nice kick too. My toddler enjoyed this which made me happy as it gets his little taste buds acquainted with spicy flavours.
