Cauliflower Coconut Soup. Delicious Asian-style summer simplicity.

Pairing coconut cream and cauliflower might be a lovely idea for an Asian-style tropical summer soup.

How we love collaborating. Hanlie Joubert of Slow Wanderings blog said she thought pairing coconut cream and Natures Garden cauliflower might be a lovely idea for an Asian-style tropical summer soup. She was so right.

Hanlie describes herself as ‘a South African-born global nomad.’ After years of wandering through the UK, Europe and USA, her days are now spent on a farm in the Franschhoek Valley, just outside of Cape Town.

‘Here, together with my husband and two children we are reclaiming slowness,’ says this photographer and stylist who tells us she keeps being inspired by the rawness of Africa and ‘the beauty of imperfection.’ Her new goal is to ‘see beauty in the everyday, to live with less, with grace and kindness.’

We like that. Without further ado, let’s sit down and help yourself to a nice bowl of kindness and cauli.
