Dandelion Soup

This detoxifying soup has bitter dandelion greens soothed by cauliflower and creamed with avo. It is loaded with Vitamin A, C and K. Dandelion is a real foraging ingredient although watch out if you are foraging in the suburbs as it may be contaminated with pesticides. Opt for organic or wild harvested. Most importantly, add the dandelion greens after the other ingredients are cooked and off the stove. There will be sufficient heat to wilt them and balance the bitterness without affecting the nutrient profile.
