Creamy carrot and cauliflower soup
How can creamy soup be made without cream? The trick is using reduced-fat Greek yogurt to get that creamy texture. Pureed carrots and cauliflower also add to the delicious mouthfeel. Both vegetables also provide a whopping 60% and 160% of the antioxidant vitamins C and A, respectively.

2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 large carrots, chopped
½ medium head cauliflower, chopped
½ tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp ground cinnamon
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
¼ cup 2% fat plain Greek yogurt, divided
¼ cup dry-roasted pumpkin seeds, divided
⅛ tsp salt
Black pepper, to taste
How to make it
In a soup pot, heat 1Tbsp oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in carrots and cauliflower, along with salt and remaining olive oil. Add turmeric and cinnamon. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Cover vegetables with broth. Place lid on pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer, and cook until vegetables are very tender, about 30 minutes.
Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth. (Alternatively, puree the soup in a blender in batches.) Serve hot or cold in a small bowl. Top each serving with black pepper, 2 tsp yogurt, and 2 tsp pumpkin seeds.
