This plant-based bisque is easy, healthy and delicious.
Cauliflower is an anti-inflammatory vegetable loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber, and carrots are not only high in fiber, but they also contain antioxidants that can help decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.
If you'd like to spice it up, add more curry paste or garnish the bisque with Sriracha sauce.
