When you don’t have a plan for dinner, it’s easy to slip up and make poor last-minute decisions. This green pea and cauliflower soup is the perfect last-minute meal, it only takes 30 minutes to make and is extremely healthy, nutrient-dense and packed with flavor.
Cauliflower, turmeric, and green peas go together to make this easy and hearty soup that’s rich in protein, calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, and vitamin C. The green peas give the soup a slightly sweet taste and a dollop of Greek yogurt and fresh mint leaves at the end balances everything out.
