This Garlic Soup is rich and creamy while being dairy free. The garlic flavor shines in this simple soup. You will never know that the creaminess comes from a combination of okra, cauliflower, and coconut oil.
To be completely honest, I am not a huge fan of okra. I don’t mind it if I can’t taste it, but putting it in baked goods and smoothies grosses me out. When I decided to try to get more okra into my diet I knew that soup was the way to go.
Why okra? The Trim Healthy Mama ladies are huge fans of it for good reason. You can read more about the benefits of okra here. Okra has a lot of vitamins and nutrients such as folic acid, calcium, vitamins B & C, and potassium. It has a lot of fiber and is low in calories.
Yes, this has 20 cloves of garlic. The garlic is boiled along with the okra and cauliflower so the flavor is mild, not overpowering.
