  • 1 large head cauliflower, broken to small pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • pinch of Healthy Life Ground Thyme

Add garlic and onions and sauté about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower to Dutch oven along with 1 cup of water, 4 cups of broth and thyme leaves. Let come to boil then reduce heat to medium low and simmer 12-15 minutes.
