Our Chestnut Soup With Cauliflower is a staple at our dinner table during the winter months. Chestnuts aren’t just for roasting over an open fire. Enjoy this luscious, creamy, nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory soup as an accompaniment to any meal. Chestnuts are relatively low in calories but rich in fiber, vitamin C, folates in addition to other B vitamins, and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, as well as zinc.

Pairing recommendation: Winter Salad With Lemon and Mint.
