Curried Cauliflower Soup

Curried cauliflower soup

Roasting your vegetables helps bring out their natural sweetness, making them just delicious and more intensely flavored.

For example, roasting cauliflower turns an otherwise bland vegetable into one with golden caramelized edges and an toasty, nutty flavor.

After roasting it, just simmer the cauliflower in a coconut infused broth with a warming blend of spices and you’ve created this delicious, velvety smooth soup.

Our curried cauliflower soup is just that easy to make. It’s a two step recipe that is satisfying, healthy, low in carbs, and can be made in less than an hour.

A colorful garnish completes the soup, making it a beautiful feast for the eyes. It’s perfect served for lunch, as a snack or as a light supper with a few quinoa and buckwheat crackers. This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for more servings.

Author: Lisa Richards
  • 1 lb. cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces (about 1 small cauliflower)
  • 4 Tbsp. oil, such as melted coconut oil or olive oil, divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. powdered cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. powdered ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. powdered turmeric
  • 2 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Garnish [optional]
  • Roasted cauliflower bits
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Finely minced fresh basil and cilantro
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Fresh lime juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F ( 205 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, add the cauliflower pieces, 2 tablespoons of oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Toss to coat.

  3. Spread cauliflower pieces on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until tender and browned, about 20 minutes, turning the pieces over halfway. Remove from the oven, and set aside. Save a few of the small bits of roasted cauliflower to garnish the soup.

  4. In a medium soup pot over medium heat, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Next add the onion and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the sliced garlic, powdered cumin, powdered ginger and powdered turmeric. Stir to combine and sauté for about 1 minute, until the garlic and spices are fragrant. Finally, add the water or broth, coconut milk and roasted cauliflower pieces. Raise heat and bring to a boil. Reduce to heat to low, cover and simmer the soup for 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower pieces are tender.

  5. Blend the soup in the soup pot with an immersion blender, or transfer it to a blender and process until smooth. Reheat if needed and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Serve the soup with a garnish of reserved roasted cauliflower bits, diced tomatoes, finely minced fresh basil and cilantro, red pepper flakes and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
