Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Don’t be fooled by the name, this creamy soup is vegan so it contains no dairy. The secret ingredient that gives this soup its kick is almond butter, which gives the soup its nutty taste and also provides healthy fats! The kidney beans give this soup protein so you don’t feel hungry after an hour. Not only is this soup delicious, but it also is great for your nails! The vitamins in the cauliflower are great for nourishing frail nails, and the protein form the kidneys bean speed up growth!
