The main goal of a healthy nutritional support program for breast cancer patients while in active treatment and recovery is to provide nutrients that are missing, maintain nutritional health, while preventing problems.  Try our favorite cauliflower and carrot soup recipe to help provide the nutritional support needed for a healthy immune system.

Cauliflower Benefits: Cruciferous Vegetables

  • Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower are full of valuable nutrients.
  • a compound called sulforaphane, an enzyme in the body that detoxifies carcinogens before they damage cells.
  • It may help to lower your risk of getting cancer.

Carrots Benefits: Best Eaten Cooked

  • One of the easiest vegetables to love.
  • Carrots are packed with disease-fighting nutrients.
  • They contain beta-carotene, an antioxidant scientists believe may protect cell membranes from toxin damage
  • Slow the growth of cancer cells.
  • Carrots deliver other vitamins and phytochemicals that might guard against cancers

This cauliflower and carrot soup recipe is easy, quick and delicious the three magic steps for a successful soup. Cauliflower has such a great subtle flavor and when you add a few magic ingredients it pops with flavors.

Ingredients:
1  large onions
1  tbsp. vegan butter
4  cups vegetable broth
1 or 1/2 cup of nut or rice milk
1 1/2 lb. of cauliflower, cut into flowerets
2  carrots, peeled and diced
6  shiitake mushroom
6  new potatoes
add: salt and  black ground pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (grated if possible)
1/8 to 1/4 tsp. cayenne (if you like spicy)

Directions:

  1. In medium sauce pan saute’ onions in butter until translucent (3 minutes).
  2. Boil potatoes until (almost) done.
  3. Reuse medium sauce pan and saute’ shiitake mushrooms and potatoes until brown. Put to side for garnish.
  4. Add vegetable broth, cauliflower flowerets and carrots. Bring the broth up to boil then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until veggies are soft. Remove from heat when done, cool down until warm.
  5. Transfer soup to blender or food processor, add nut or rice milk, onions and puree. I personally like it a bit lumpy. Add spices to taste. You may also add more nut milk if it is thick.
