Cauliflower Potato Soup

Cauliflower Potato Soup - Good Girl Gone Green

Over the last month or so, I have been receiving a head of cauliflower weekly with my Lufa Farms basket. I am not a cauliflower fan to begin with, but I couldn’t possibly let the cauliflower go to waste. That wouldn’t be very waste-free of me.

I figured if I mixed the cauliflower with other veggies I love, it would most probably simmer down the cauliflower punch when eating it. So, I made a Soup.

When I am looking for blender recipes, I tend to gravitate towards Tess Masters, The Blender Girl. She has the most fabulous recipes and I have been making many of her soup recipes lately. She has a Creamy Vegan of Cauliflower Soup that calls for leeks. I didn’t have leeks, so I thought to substitute with potatoes and make my own cauliflower concoction. It surprisingly turned out great. Usually when I don’t follow a recipe, it tends to blows up in my face. I have been making this particular Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup recipe for the last month, and the cauliflower taste is subtle, but I know it is there. My little E has been gobbling this one down every time I serve it to her.

I guess this soup recipe is a success, but I am not sure how much I can depend on the taste buds of  a 2 year old. Why don’t you be the judge and let me know how I did?

Cream of Cauliflower Potato Soup

Yields 6-8 bowls of delicious soup

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower chopped
  • 8 medium potatoes chopped
  • 2 garlic gloves
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of raw cashews
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Optional- cooked quinoa for garnish

Instructions

  • Roast the garlic cloves in the oven for about 30 minutes at 400F.
  • In a large sauce pan, add the chopped cauliflower and potatoes with the roasted garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Pour the 4 cups of broth and 4 cups of water over the vegetables.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce to a low heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Stir often to break up the cauliflower and potatoes.
  • Let the soup cool enough to use your high powdered blender- I use my Blendtec.
  • Purée the soup mixture in 2 batches (depending on the size of your blender) with the 1/2 cups of cashews.
  • Optional- top your bowl with a spoon full of quinoa when ready to serve.
