  • 1 small Cauliflower cored and chopped
  • 12 large Brussels sprouts end removed and chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 32 oz low sodium vegetable broth divided
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups thawed frozen peas
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • Juice from ½ of a medium lemon
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper See Note
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  1. In a large soup pot, heat 2 tbsp (30 ml) vegetable broth on medium-high heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and cook for 5 minutes, stir occasionally. Add the cauliflower and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the ginger and garlic and stir. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the broth and water, stir well and bring to a boil. Add the peas and cook for 15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is fork tender. Add the parsley, basil, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Blend with an immersion blender or use a stand-up blender, until smooth and creamy. There will be some specks of the parsley, which makes it even prettier to look at.

Recipe Notes

If you’re sensitive to spicy food, don’t add the full amount all at once, add a small amount of the cayenne, taste, and add more if you wish.
