Chicken and cauliflower Indian soup - Plant based whole food

Indian Spiced Chicken and Cauliflower Soup with Crispy Onions

I made a huge bowl of this for lunch yesterday and scoffed the whole lot!! Its bursting with amazing flavours that are guaranteed to get those saliva glands working overtime!! I NEED to make more today it was so delicious!!!  The best thing is, It’s really easy to make, quick and healthy (of course!) and the crispy onions just finish the dish off beautifully!  If you want to make it a more substantial dish just add a couple of tablespoons of cooked quinoa in there, and Robert’s your father’s brother, you have an amazing main dish brimming with health (and happiness!) waiting for you to devour it!
