Curried Cauliflower Soup

Once a disappointing addition to a traditional British Roast Dinner, Cauliflower is now considered a versatile vegetable. Cauliflower can be used to make steaks, wings, pizza and even rice – it needn’t be a boring side dish. One of my favourite ways to use the florets is in my Curried Cauliflower Soup.

If you’re feeling brave, add an extra red chilli.

As a rough guide, this recipe serves 4.

  • 500g cauliflower
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 400ml water
  • 2 curry leaves
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 brown onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
  • 2 tbsp. garam masala
  • 1 tbsp. tumeric
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. vegan bouillon powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Break the cauliflower in to florets then finely chop the celery, carrots, onion, garlic, chilli and ginger. Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan using a medium heat then add the prepared vegetables.
Cook for 5 minutes to allow the vegetables to soften a little then add all of the ground spices and the vegan bouillon powder. Coat the vegetables in the ground spices and vegan bouillon powder then cook for 5 minutes.
Add the coconut milk, water and curry leaves then stir to combine. Cover the saucepan with a lid then cook for a further 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower is ready.
Remove the curry leaves then transfer 4-5 ladles of the soup to a food processor. Process until a smooth puree is formed. Add the puree to the saucepan – this will thicken the soup. Sti
r to combine then season to taste.
