Fall is here which mean cold and flu season is right around the corner. To help fight off those nasty germs, here is a soup that can not only boost your immune system but fill you up with fresh veggies.

The beautiful fall color of this soup is made by the spice turmeric.

Turmeric is the main spice in this recipe. Not only is turmeric great for immune health, it's also great for joint, digestive and cardiovascular health.

Cauliflower is one of many veggies in this soup. Did you know that cauliflower contains sulforaphane which is one of the most important compounds that enhances the health of your heart?!
