1 head of cauliflower, chopped into about 5 cups of chunks or florets
1 cup cashews
1 tablespoon turmeric – see notes
7–8 cups water
2 teaspoons salt
a squeeze of lemon juice
Sauté: Heat the oil in a deep soup pot. Add the onion, garlic, cauliflower, cashews, and turmeric. Sauté for 10 minutes or until very fragrant.
Simmer: Add the water (I usually start with 4 cups) and salt. Simmer until softened.
Blend: Transfer the soup to a blender and blend into a creamy consistency. It’s best to do this in batches.
Finish: Return to the soup pot and add any additional water (remaining 2-3 cups) if you need to thin it out. Also a good time to season with more salt and a squeeze of lemon juice. Also a good time to top with spiced chickpeas and parsley and olive oil and more salt and put on your most comfy sweater and enjoy!

1/4 cup sunflower seed butter or other creamy no stir nut butter of choice.
1 tsp vanilla
parchment paper for 8×8 pan.
FOR THE FROSTING/COCONUT ICING:
1/2 cup coconut butter/oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
Line an 8×8 inch square pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a blender or food processor, blend together 1 1/4 cup dried pineapple, 1 cup cashews, 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds, 1/2 cup of your coconut. You might have to scrape down sides a few times. Next Add in your 1/4 cup sunflower seed nut butter (or other smooth nut butter of choice), vanilla, and blend again until batter is combined and starting to stick together.
Press batter into 8×8 pan.
Finally, make the frosting/icing for the top.
Blend 1 tbsp lime juice, 1 – 2 tbsp maple syrup, and softened coconut oil or butter until smooth. Spread over bars. Place in fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
Remove from fridge and slice into squares. Drizzle a little maple syrup on top. Then a sprinkle of shredded unsweetened coconut. Add a slice of lime on top of each bar.
Keep bars in fridge. They will be fine at room temperature for 1 hour or so before the icing starts to melt. Freezer friendly.
