Moroccan Cauliflower and Crispy Tempeh Soup

Cauliflower Moroccan Soup and Crispy Tempeh Vegan

The combination of Moroccan flavoured cauliflower soup with crispy tempeh is a dream on a chilly winters day, serve this with some delicious warm bread and you’ve got yourself a nourishing & warming meal.

This soup is relatively quick to make and is filled with warming spices and plenty of garlic (to keep any nasty bugs away).

With cauliflower in season, it’s a delicious way to increase your fibre and antioxidant intake, through the rich source of vitamins and minerals present.

The crispy tempeh is optional, but most definitely makes this dish stand out, it gives it the crunch and extra spice that satisfies, as well as dropping in a good dose of plant based protein.
