This Detox Cauliflower Chowder is one of those soups you’d actually want to eat on a summer day. 

This detox cauliflower chowder is simple, flavorful, and naturally detoxifying. It’s the perfect way to get in those cruciferous vegetables like Cauliflower in your diet. Cauliflower is well known for its phytonutrient, glucosinolates; which are sulfur-containing compounds. Glucosinolates have been well studied and are known to support the cardiovascular, digestive, immune, inflammatory, and detoxification systems.  I opted to include some organic chicken sausage for added protein.  Bon Appétit!
