Rich, creamy, curried cream of cauliflower soup is a quick and easy meal with some bread on the side for dipping.
Ever since perfecting my cauliflower mashed potatoes recipe, I’ve been looking for more ways to sneak cauliflower into my cooking. This cream of cauliflower soup recipe has rich, curry flavors, and I’m kind of in love with it.
Darrol Henry doesn’t super love cruciferous vegetables. For him, though, it’s a texture ting. He will eat broccoli or kale whole, if I hand him a piece, but cooked in dishes he just says no. That’s sort of a bummer, since broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc are pretty much my favorites. This cream of cauliflower soup recipe gave me my cruciferous fix in a dish that my kid actually ate. Yay!
I used frozen veggies to make this soup, but you could absolutely substitute fresh. Just steam them up before you get started, and you can add them at the same points in the recipe as the frozen veggies.
Curried Cream of Cauliflower Soup Recipe
Yield: 4 servings
- 1 bunch scallions, green and white parts, chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons each ground ginger and yellow curry powder
- 1 teaspoon each celery salt and garlic powder
- 4 cups mushroom broth
- 16 oz bag frozen cauliflower or 2 cups fresh, chopped
- 1/2 cup soy or almond milk
- 2 cups mixed frozen peas and carrots (Fresh will work fine, too, just increase the cooking time as needed to cook them through.)
- 1 large red potato, baked and diced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- Saute the scallions on medium heat in the oil until they soften, about 5 minutes. Add the broth and spices. Bring everything to a boil, then add the cauliflower, return the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 7 min.
- Use you immersion blender to puree the soup. You can also transfer it to a blender of food processor if you don’t have an immersion blender. If you do the latter, transfer it back to the pot when you’re done.
- Turn the heat back to medium and add the milk, peas, carrots, potato, and soy sauce. Stir constantly until the veggies are heated through. Serve!
