Roasted turmeric cauliflower soup with coconut cream
For some reason I never made soup until this autumn, I wonder why. I wasn’t so much into soups but now I have discovered various different recipes and this cold winter season soups are the best thing to warm you up. Plus soups loaded with veggies so full of nutrition too.
When I told my husband I’m making a cauliflower soup he straight away said no :) I said I’ll make it anyway you can give it a try and see and when he did try he honestly liked it.
It’s a beautiful blend of spices like turmeric, cumin and paprika, grilled in the oven until nice and soft and those burnt bits are the ones that gives it that extra smokiness! The coconut cream gives it such a smooth texture, so rich and creamy and it sobers the spices down a little, otherwise it makes it a bit harsh. I did taste the soup before adding the coconut cream and it was a little harsh, adding the coconut cream makes it milder yet a rich soup.
If you are looking for soups this season I have a gorgeous Roasted red peppers and vine tomatoes soup and also a Maple pumpkin roasted soup, both are loved at home. I also have an Italian Minestrone soup which is loaded with veggies and beans, great one if you want to add those left over veggies.
You can mix and match the spices if you like, if you want it more spicy feel free to add chilli powder instead of paprika. I kept it mild because it was for my five year old too.
I added a drizzle of Chilli oil, inspired by the lovely Frances from The Honest Project, where she shared Roast-Cauliflower-cannellini bean soup recipe drizzled chilli oil, I just loved the sound of it, So I just had to try it too and it was worth it! I connected with Frances over Instagram, she and I have been in touch with each other only through Instagram, but it's funny how it feels like as if we have met before. She is such a lovely, down to earth and honest person. Her blog is full of delicious recipes and inspiration that is not only about food, but also book recommendations and lifestyle. Hopefully we will get to meet in person someday. :)
I hope you enjoy this soup on a cold wintery night. Serve it with crusty bread and it’s a satisfying, warm, satisfying and fulfilling meal.
