Cauliflower & Red Bean Soup

Cauliflower & Red Bean soup resulted from a request to create something that had both beans and turmeric.  This is a “dump soup”.  I put all of the vegetable ingredients together into one freezer bag so that the only thing required to cook is to pull out a freezer bag and open a can of beans. If you extra freezer space, you can make up four or so “dump bags” in one batch.  

Soup is an excellent choice for easy mid-week meals with leftovers packed into lunch for the next day. The addition of turmeric will help protect you from the “office cold” and keep you warm in winter.
