Turmeric is an incredible spice that not only adds flavor and color, but it also has healing properties. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, as well as promoting joint, heart and lung health. It’s been used in Eastern medicine practices for thousands of years!
You guys know how much I adore my creamy soups, and this blend is the perfect addition. It’s thick and creamy, but without a ton of added fat or calories like you typically see in creamy soups – think heavy cream or coconut milk. By using this blend, we’re able to still achieve that luxurious texture, but keep it light and healthy.
I’m super excited to be partnering with Almond Breeze for a series of six posts this year, showing you how you can use plant-based milk as a healthy substitute to dairy. And we’re going beyond just smoothies and baking; I’ve got lots of savory meals planned and I can’t wait to share them with you!

To make our cauliflower soup, we start by roasting the cauliflower with some garlic, shallots, oil and spices. This gives the soup a smokier flavor, while also meaning less hands-on time for you. Just chop, toss and roast!
Once your veggies are roasted, we start to assemble the soup. You just toss everything together in one pot – your veggies, red lentils, broth and non-dairy milk, and blend away.
I used an immersion blender for this one, but you could totally use your blender or food processor to get this texture. And in all honesty, you could also just leave it as is if you like chunky, brothier soups. Either way, it would be delicious!

I topped mine with some chopped kale (because I didn’t have herbs on hand), some cracked pepper, a spritz of lime and a drizzle of the almondmilk cashewmilk blend.  Served with a slice of my favorite quinoa bread and ahhh…just delicious!
I’ve had it for two days straight and am already planning on making another batch this weekend. It’s one of those soups that I know I’ll keep coming back to because it makes me feel good from the inside out.

    Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
