eat clean: cauliflower and kale soup!

we are trying to
“eat clean”
eat healthier
we’ve been at this for about a month now
and i have posted pictures
of some of my food (re)creations
on my
facebook page
but the other day
who is my facebook friend
if i had pinned the recipes
because she wanted to try them
(i say recreate because most are recipes that i modify)
so tonight
it’s a cauliflower and kale soup
inspired by dr. furnham's
my husband frowned initially 
honestly i kinda did too....
my oh my!!
it is a do again!
without further adieu
let's get started
a 3-4 sliced carrots
a cup of celery
and a head of cauliflower separated into florets
2 cups of carrot juice
4 cups of water
some ms. dash’s
(about 2 tablespoons)
a dash of nutmeg
simmer until tender
for me this was about 20 minutes

while this mixture is simmering steam
4-5 cups of kale
i steamed mine in the microwave
so easy!
i put a little lemon juice on the shredded kale
covered the bowl with a paper towel
then set the timer for 4 minutes
also check on your little one
why hello cutie!
after your ‘soup’ mixture is tender
take a cup of raw cashews
raw cashews are hard to find
especially overseas
so i found the ‘healthiest’ alternative
in the commissary
the only ingredients are cashews and salt
put the cashews in a blender
add most of the soup mix
then blend till smooth
once smooth
add the smooth soup
back to the liquid soup
or what’s left
mix together
top with kale
mix some more
let cool a little
and voila
it is simply tasty!

and it’s only 175 calories per cup!!!!!!!
