Vegan Spiced Cauliflower & Lentil Soup

This insanely delicious and insanely easy weeknight-friendly meal is totally vegan, gluten-free, and easy to toss together in a snap. It’s a Vegan Spiced Cauliflower and Lentil Soup and it’s my new obsession. The soup is almost like a stew. but still feels light with the cauliflower in there. The spices go beautifully with the cauliflower and the lentils which pack the recipe with protein.


I love topping this with extra plant-based yogurt, mint and roasted chickpeas. Sounds weird, but trust me - it’s so good!
