Cauliflower Soup

October 21, 2009

~ Mary ~


Ear marked this one from my new issue of Clean Eating.  I’ll be making it again but skipping all the liquid and the blending and just have it as a side of cauliflower – it was mighty good – it was also mighty easy.


I warned John that all the fiber might give us gas so he took some Beano before hand, but neglected to give me any – poor boy suffered. 



Also since this was our dinner I had to sneak in some diced cooked chicken for John’s serving – he needs/wants his protein – in meat form.  The magazine recommended some spiced chickpeas which sounded delightful, but I was out of time and all the additional spices, in my humble opinion, would take away from the soup itself.




Cauliflower Soup


In a soup pot over med-high heat saute` in some olive oil:

     1 Large Onion Diced

     2 tsp Turmeric

     1 1/2 tsp Cardamom

     1/4 tsp Saffron – optional

     1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper

     1 Tbsp Minced Garlic


when onion is limp, but not browned, stir in:

     1 Head Cauliflower cored and chopped

     1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard

     3 Cups Chicken Stock


Simmer for 20-30 minutes or until very soft.

Puree in blender or with a hand held submersion blender.

If it’s too thick add some more stock.

    I’m big into soups lately. This looks great! I love the color, and it’s a light and healthy recipe too. My favorite!

    What a beautiful color! The spices you added would compliment cauliflower so nicely.

    That sounds good. Great color too. I’ll try them when cauliflowers are in season.

    Seriously – YOU AND ME BOTH…. when it comes to needing the BEENO!!! I hardly.. if ever… eat cabbage anymore because it’s worse than all other veggies! Ah ha ha!!! But I have definitely made this recipe before and it rocks!! Clean Eating is just such a good concept, I wish more people would jump on board! ha ha.

    Great soup! And I like your idea of making it as a side dish. I make a smashed cauliflower dish and always play around with the seasoning. I love the flavors in this recipe.

      Glad you liked it and thank YOU for letting me know! I’ve got a head in the fridge (of cauliflower) and can’t decide if I make this again or try a new recipe.
