Curried Cauliflower Soup Recipe

Cauliflower is often viewed as a lowly, humble vegetable.  It doesn't get the same attention as it's cousin kale.  But, adding it to your diet does give you many benefits.  Digestive system support, cancer prevention, antioxidants and inflammation suppression are just a few of the benefits you get from cauliflower.  This soup, that contains cauliflower, is warm and slightly spicy.  It elevates this lowly vegetable.  It also pairs well with my Cranberry Cornbread.  I'm giving you two ways to make it.  One way is vegetarian and the other is vegan.  You make your choice which to use.  Be sure to pin this recipe.  You will want it all winter long!


Vegetarian Curried Cauliflower Soup Recipe

1 cup diced onion
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 cups sliced, raw cauliflower
2 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp. hot madras curry powder
1 cup fat free milk
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour (I use spelt flour)
salt and white pepper

Combine the onion, garlic, cauliflower, curry powder and broth in a medium size saucepan.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer.  Simmer until cauliflower is very soft.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Pour cauliflower into a blender and puree until smooth.  You may need to do this half of the cauliflower at a time.  Return to the saucepan.  In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat.  Add flour and stir 1 or 2 minutes to combine flour and butter.  Add the milk to the butter and heat over low heat until milk is thickened and bubbles start to form around the edges.  Pour milk into cauliflower and heat until  it is hot and ready to eat.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Vegan Curried Cauliflower Soup Recipe

1 cup diced onion
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 cups sliced, raw cauliflower
1 cup peeled, diced, raw russet potato
3 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp. hot madras curry powder
salt and white pepper

Place onion, garlic, cauliflower, potato, curry powder and broth in a medium sized saucepan.  Bring to boil and reduce heat to simmer.  Simmer until cauliflower and potatoes are soft.  Remove from heat and cool.  Pour into blender container and puree until smooth.  You may need to do this half of the cauliflower at a time.  Return to the saucepan and heat until hot and ready to eat.  Salt and pepper to taste.

I live in a rural area.  We are not able to get ingredients to make a true Indian curry.  We also can't get ingredients to make our own curry powder.  If you have access to the ingredients to make your own curry powder, I recommend doing so.  Also, you may not like the amount of curry I use in this recipe.  Adjust it to your taste.  Have a great week and have fun in the kitchen!
