This is a creamy mild coconut curry cauliflower Vegan soup is a recipe that I guarantee you will be preparing more than once. Using the mighty cast-iron Dutch oven it is one-pot cooking at it’s finest.

The curry is thick and creamy you will probably devour the lot but if there is any left it will taste just as good the next day.

Coconut Curry Cauliflower Soup (Vegan) Recipe

Although this soup “has a curry flavor” it contains the warm creamy yet light undertones of a Thai dish.

The combination of fresh cauliflower, creamy coconut milk finished off with lime juice, and topped with fresh coriander is delicious.

This soup recipe serves eight and would be excellent as a starter. Alternatively, feed less hungry mouths and you would have the main meal. That should be served with crusty fresh bread and Vegan spread of choice.

What Are the Ingredients for Coconut Curry Cauliflower Soup

1 head of cauliflower cut into flowerets
2 medium sticks of celery, finely chopped
1 carrot finely, chopped
1 onion finely, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 tablespoon of olive oil or avocado oil
1 liter of vegetable stock
1 425 can grams of coconut milk
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon of symbolic chili garlic paste
Juice of half a line 1 teaspoon
Fresh coriander leaves

How to Make Coconut Curry Cauliflower Soup

Use low heat to heat your oil of choice in a medium Dutch oven or other deep-sided cooking pot.

Add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and salt.

Stir gently until the onion is softened should take about five minutes.

Add the cauliflower and vegetable stock.

Increase the heat to medium until the Dutch oven starts to simmer.

Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid, and cook until the cauliflower is tender. Should take about 10 minutes.

Keep the heat at low and stir in the coconut milk, curry powder, and Sambal Oelek. Cook for a further two minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the lime juice.

You can use a handheld blender to purée the soup.

Alternatively, wait until the soup has cooled a little and transfer in batches to a blender and purée. If choosing this method you will have to return pureed soup to the Dutch oven and reheat.

Serve hot.

Serving Suggestions

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.

Roasted up some peanuts and serve them crushed over the soup.

Crusty fresh bread with a spread of choice.

One Recipe Two Different Types of Curries

There are two different curry blends you can use successfully in this soup. 

West Indian and Jamaican curry blends have allspice in them. This spice blend complements cauliflower and the nutty tones in the sweet-tasting coconut milk.

Whereas an Indian curry blend contains Cardamon giving the soup a sharp curry taste.

So changing out the curry blends gives this soup recipe two different tastes.

Can You Freeze Soup?

Can you freeze Vegan cauliflower soup? Absolutely it will be good in the freezer for 3 months.

There are many ways to freeze my favorite is using a large ice cube tray. Storing these soup cubes in the freezer is a no-mess no-fuss way of having a quick lunch or dinner on hand.
