The magic of this recipe comes from roasted cauliflower. Whether you like cauliflower, or not so much, I bet you will love roasted cauliflower which gives this soup its special taste and the creamy texture. Trust me and give it a try!

How to Make Curried Cauliflower Soup

  • Start by breaking the cauliflower into small florets.
  • Spread cauliflower florets in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Roast them after seasoning with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil in a preheated oven. Remove from oven when the tips of the cauliflower change their color into golden brown. Or if you have an Air Fryer, you can make Air Fryer cauliflower and use it.

  • Add remaining olive oil into a pan and saute the onion until it turns translucent.
  • Add garlic and fry for one minute until the garlic is fragrant and turns golden.
  • Add the curry powder and ground turmeric and give it a stir.
  • Add the roasted cauliflower to the pot (leaving some for topping the final dish). Then, stir in all the liquid ingredients (vegetable broth and coconut milk).
  • Simmer for 10 minutes. Then blend the soup using animmersion blender until smooth and creamy.
  • Finally, top the soup with the remaining cauliflower florets, soya cream and sprinkle with fresh cilantro. Serve hot.

Flavorful curried cauliflower soup is one of the best soups ever because it is made of good-for-your-health vegetables and is ready in 30 minutes or less! Plus, it is vegan and gluten-free.

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower broken into small florets
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • fresh cilantro for serving
  • 1 tablespoon soy cream to garnish

Instructions

  • Start by breaking the cauliflower into small florets, then spread it in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

  • Roast cauliflower after seasoning it with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Remove from oven when the tips of the cauliflower change their color into golden brown.

  • Add remaining olive oil into a pan and saute the onion until it turns translucent.

  • Add garlic and fry for one minute until the garlic is fragrant and turns golden.

  • Add the curry powder and ground turmeric and give it a stir.

    Sooo good!!
    I only used 1/2 tin of coconut milk as I only had full fat and finished it with toasted almonds and coriander yum!
    Thank you

      I’m thrilled to hear you enjoyed the recipe and made it your own with the almonds and coriander! Using full-fat coconut milk can definitely make a dish richer, so adjusting the quantity was a smart move. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback!

    Absolutely delicious! I accidentally added a bit more curry and turmeric and it was great! Instead of soy cream, I have coconut cream and it is a nice touch!

      This curried cauliflower soup is freezer friendly. However, it might thicken up a bit, so adding some water or broth will thin it out.

    I just made this and it’s absolutely delicious! (even though I slightly torched the cauliflower ). Very easy to make too. Definitely a keeper!
    My curry powder tastes quite bitter so I used just 1/2 teaspoon, and completely omitted the soy cream cause I did t have any.
    Thanks a lot!

    Absolutely delicious! So flavorful. I added a little curry power to the cauliflower when roasting to give it some additional heat. This soup has the perfect kick and a nice consistency. Easy and healthy. I paired it with some pea and potato samosas but this would also be excellent with some naan for dipping!

    Great and easy recipe! I used my air fryer to roast the cauliflower which I also seasoned with smoked paprika in addition to the salt and pepper. Amazing flavors from such a simple recipe!

    Roasting the cauliflower really adds to the soup. The only thing different I did was double up on the spice. We love curry. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.

    How many cups roughly would you say is a small head? I want to make this tomorrow as it sounds amazing! I have probably 5 to 6 cups of florets cut up! Thanks
