This soup is super satisfying. It’s rich and creamy thanks to the cauliflower, and then the miso brings a savory umami flavor that pairs perfectly with the cauliflower. Miso is made from fermented soybeans, so is high in protein and is great for gut health. This soup can be made as a starter or as a hearty main with some sourdough bread and a side salad.
