On the Menu: Creamy Cauliflower Soup

You would think that by now I would be accustomed to cold weather since I am from Portland, but I’m a total wimp. The temperature has fallen to the thirties at night and all I’ve been wanting is a comforting warm bowl of soup. That’s when I call on food contributor Susan of Peas and Love to help me out with a go-to easy recipe. When she started listing off soups we could make, this creamy cauliflower soup stood out – plus Susan mentioned it was one of her favorite detox meals (bonus!).

Friends, when I took my first bite of this soup, my entire body warmed up and it was singing with glee. The flavors of this soup are divine and the little sprinkle of paprika on top makes it have a little zip. Hope you enjoy this soup as much as I did.

Bon appetit!

Creamy Cauliflower Soup


1 Head Organic Cauliflower, halved
1/2 a small Yellow Onion
3 small Organic Potatoes
1/2 cup of Coconut Milk
1 Tbsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
Salt to taste
Black Pepper and Paprika to top


In a large pot bring together the cauliflower, onion, and potatoes and boil for 30 minutes over medium heat. Drain water, and transfer contents from the pot to a blender, adding in coconut milk, liquid aminos and salt. Blend on high for 1 whole minute. If you have a less than turbo blender, stop occasionally to scrape down sides and give it little stir. Then blend some more until creamy consistency is achieved. Transfer directly to a bowl and drizzle over olive oil. Sprinkle some black pepper and paprika on top and serve!

Side Note:

This creamy cruciferous soup is a guaranteed crowd (and belly) pleaser- and perfect for staying cozy during these wintry months. Cauliflower is totally underrated but they provide excellent digestive and detox support due to the mighty amounts of antioxidants, omega 3′s, dietary fiber, protein, B Vitamins, Vitamin C and Vitamin K- which regulate inflammation. Don’t take antioxidants for granted, for they protect you against free-radical damage and many diseases.

    I never realized how versatile cauliflower was until I started blogging again! I could really use a bowl of this soup right now!! You put coconut milk in it? Must be tastey! =)

    Yum! This looks like the perfect dinner on a freezing day — and it’s vegetarian! I’m definitely going to have to give this a try.

    I love cauliflower anything. Just last weekend I made a soup similar to this from the latest Kinfolk, where you roast the cauliflower first and then add a dab of truffle butter at the end. Amazing! And so perfect for these freezing SF temps. Love!

    I adore recipes that are simple to make and good for you! So I will have to make this one. I’ve made the smoothie you posted a few weeks ago 4 times! Love it!

    This recipe looks amazing! I’ve been freezing in these SF temperatures as well (I’m convinced it’s because the apartment buildings here have terrible insulation…) and all I’ve been craving is a warm and creamy soup! The fact that this doesn’t have heavy cream in it makes it doubly attractive. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

    Sounds great, I’d like to make this, the coconut flavour might be interesting with the cauliflower. Very interesting mix!
