An Oldie But A Goodie

I’ve blogged countless times about this wonderful Curried Cauliflower Soup recipe from  It tastes great, is easy to make and requires very few ingredients. 

We had a cauliflower in the fridge that needed to be used up so last night was the perfect opportunity to make another batch of soup.

I always double the ingredients so that we have left over’s for our lunches. (This ingredient list is for a double batch.)

  • Head of cauliflower, cut into florets.
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 onions, sliced thick
  • 2 teaspoon curry powder (I use more)
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • Cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Honey for drizzling

1.  Preheat oven to 450°F.

2. Spread cauliflower florets on a baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.   Roast until florets are browned, about 25 to 30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

3.  In a small stockpot, heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until they turn brown (but are not caramelized).

4.  Stir in curry powder and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

5.  Add chicken stock, water, and cauliflower. Cover and bring to boil and then simmer until cauliflower is soft, about 5 minutes.

6. Purée the soup with a stand or immersion blender until smooth.

7.  Return to pot if using a stand blender, reheat if necessary. Add salt, pepper, and cayenne (if using) to taste.

Since I already had the oven on I also whipped up a batch of cheddar biscuits.  I made a huge pan of minis. Aren’t they cute? 🙂  I doubled the ingredients listed in this recipe too.

Dinner was pretty spectacular I must say.  A big bowl of soup served with a dollop of greek yogurt & a drizzle of honey. De-lish!

Plus a large biscuit. (I made two bigger ones along with the minis)  These guys were good.  Recipe is now saved in my huge binder. 🙂

I popped open this can of all natural Root Beer and had about half.  Found in the natural food section at Superstore for those wondering. It is free of HFCS. 🙂

Holy long post! Try the soup, I promise it won’t disappoint.


I’m just getting ready to go to my group run now, it’s a beautiful evening for it. :)  The forecast has been absolutely amazing these past 2 weeks.    Hope you all have a great night!
