1 T. Organic Grade B Maple Syrup or Raw Agave Nectar
1 large green apple, peeled and chopped

The Details

In large stockpot, heat Oil or Ghee over medium heat and sauté shallot, garlic & onion until translucent (about 5 min). Add the curry powder & ginger. Sauté for 3 minutes more. Add the Cauliflower and stir to coat with the seasonings.

Cook for about 4 minutes more, stirring occasionally, to infuse the Cauliflower with the spices.

Add apple, carrots, turnip and sweet potatoes and cook 4 more minutes until everything is incorporated.

Pour on veggie stock, stir together and bring to boil. Put lid on, lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until veggies are cooked through.

Add coconut milk, maple syrup or agave, lime juice, zest and fresh herbs, if using, salt and pepper to taste. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve over brown rice or basmati rice!
