Magical Cauliflower Soup Recipe
We don’t believe in magic (except in Harry Potter), but in our muggle world, turmeric is as magical as you can get. Ginger’s sassy cousin, turmeric is an unmistakable spice that adds a distinctive kick to anything you add it to. Which is why we made it the not-so-secret ingredient to our turmeric zucchini cauliflower soup.
This cauliflower soup, in our humble opinion, is among our most delicious and versatile. Serve it hot, serve it cold, make extra and give some to a neighbor you want to like you. No matter how you eat it, you’ll be sad when the bowl is empty. (Pro tip: double the recipe).
The key to this cauliflower soup is - surprise! - Cauliflower, the world’s most delightful vegetable. Not only is it delicious on its own, but cauliflower is also a nutrient-rich sponge that soaks up the flavors it’s cooked with - like, say, turmeric, and the aromatic blend of onion, zucchini, fresh ginger, and coconut milk that make up our soup.
You can eat cauliflower raw, you can also bake it, roast it, or, of course, whip it into cauliflower soup. (By the way, if you are trying to cut carbs, cauliflower is a vegetable you’ll want to get to know. You can chop it into “rice,” mash it like a potato, or mix it with eggs for pizza crust.)
Preparing Cauliflower Soup is a breeze - another plus for when you don’t feel like spending hours at the stove in the summer. The same goes for our Authentic Spanish Gazpacho and Creamy Vegan Corn Soup With Basil and Pine Nuts
For an extra dash of fabulous, you can garnish the cauliflower soup with some of these flavorful extras:
