Curried Cauliflower Soup


I’m at it again with the Whole Foods recipes! This one is for cauliflower soup, which I decided to whip up since I had all of the ingredients on hand except for a head of cauliflower. Well, that and I had an accounting exam to study for, i.e. this train just pulled into the procrastination station, if you know what I mean.

Slight warning for the faint of heart: we happened to have a Muchi Curry spice on hand, and for the amount I used in this recipe, its spicy! If you don’t like spicy foods, use a milder curry or a lighter touch.

Back to the recipe. I prepared my ingredients:

1/2 cup sunflower kernels
4 cups unsweetened almond milk
3 teaspoons curry powder
1.5 cups chopped yellow onion (Kath would hate this recipe!)
5 cloves garlic, chopped (I always up the garlic in every recipe!)
1 head cauliflower, roughly chopped


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a small bowl, toss sunflower kernels with 1 teaspoon of your almond milk and 1 teaspoon of your curry powder. Spread out on a cookie sheet and bake, stirring once or twice, for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until toasted. Set these aside to cool.

Meanwhile, heat about 1/2 cup almond milk in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Add cauliflower, remaining 2 teaspoons curry powder and almond milk, cover and simmer until cauliflower is very tender, about 40-50 minutes.

Use a stick blender to purée the soup in the pot, or purée in a blender (in batches) until smooth. Transfer to bowls, garnish with the sunflower seeds.

Finally, watch your dog beg. (No one told her it was spicy!)

  1. Yum! I bet the sunflower kernals added such a lovely complexity to the soup. I love curry spices, I usually have to add more in to satisfy my taste buds!

    Yum. Love Curry.
    Next year for St Pattys I am requesting a cabbage and potato type recipe that is veggie friendly and does not use fake meat. Up to the challenge? I cant find a good one anywhere.
