Roasted Cauliflower Soup
Cauliflower is a vegetable with a PR problem. It’s pale and scrunched-up and intimidatingly hefty, and it looks unmistakably like a brain. Add that to the way most people try it – boiled into much, or raw with some tasteless low-fat dip – and it’s not surprising that the poor cauliflower doesn’t have many fans.
But the cauliflower haters are missing out. As well as being jam-packed with nutrients (notably Vitamins C, K, B6, and B9), cauliflower has a savory-sweet side just waiting to shine through. The trick is to roast it first, with plenty of fat – this concentrates the flavor and softens the florets without turning them to mush. After a spin in the blender with some coconut milk and herbs, any unfortunate visual associations are completely gone: you’re left with a silky, creamy soup delicious enough to make you forget the words “diet food” forever.
As well as a versatile side dish, this would also be a wonderful soup for anyone sick in bed: the chicken broth is very healing, and the soup overall is easy to keep down without being bland or boring. To add a little crunch, you can sprinkle some bacon on top: this is optional, but the smoky flavor of the bacon adds an incredible taste and really complements the texture of the soup itself. A dash of parsley adds a nice visual contrast, and your bowl is ready to serve!
How to Make Curried Paleo Cauliflower Soup
I have always loved a nice bowl of soup. It can have the ability to transform your mood or make you feel instantly better when you are under the weather. The coconut milk in this recipe combines nicely with the curry to make a sweet and comforting soup. The curry adds a beautiful depth of flavor, as does the roasted cauliflower. This lightly-spiced cauliflower soup is warming and delicious.
Cauliflower soup is very simple and affordable. I didn’t intentionally start eating a mostly vegetarian diet, but it has turned out to be so. When I moved to the city and meat became much more expensive than I was used to, I found myself gravitating toward veggies more and more. And cauliflower has become a staple, mainly because one head of cauliflower can stretch over a few meals, and because it fills me up. Versatile and easy to prepare, cauliflower is a regular in my kitchen now.
I turn to cauliflower a lot more in the winter, partially because many other fresh vegetables are all out of season, and partially because it’s so hearty and comforting. This isn’t one of those soups that are best served as an appetizer; rather it has a lot of substance and is satisfying as a meal on its own. This soup is perfect for a cold blustery day, when you are look for some hot food to keep your insides warm. It’s also not too heavy, which is a welcoming aspect for post-holiday meals.
This cauliflower soup recipe is a great solution for those who are looking for a meat-free meal that is not only hearty, but also packed with vitamins and nutrients. Serve this Paleo soup on a cold or rainy day as the main dish or as a side dish paired with mixed vegetables if you’d rather not use it as the main course. By replacing the chicken broth with vegetable stock, you can also make it vegetarian and vegan friendly.
