Cauliflower & spinach soup

Soup is a great way to get your veggies while filling you up with bulky, fibrous, nutrient-dense foods while keeping calories down.   

Cauliflower provides vitamin B5, B6, choline, vitamin C, phosphorus and potassium, while spinach fills in the B2, folate, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, copper, iron, magnesium and manganese.  Nutritional yeast will boost B12 as well as round out the taste.
