Roasted Curried Cauliflower Soup


2 cup Water
1 head medium (5-6 inch dia.) Cauliflower, raw
1 spray Spray olive oil
1 tsp. Olive oil
2 clove Garlic, raw (minced)
1 large White onions (diced)
3 Large stalk Celery, raw (diced)
2 cups No salt added vegetable stock
2 cup Water
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 to taste Black pepper
3/4 tsp. Curry powder


Preheat oven to 375°F. Place a large skillet in the oven.

Place the water in a medium pot over fitted with a steamer basket over high heat. Add the cauliflower to the steamer and cook until it begins to soften.

Remove the skillet from the oven and spray lightly with oil. Add the cauliflower and return the pan to the oven.

While the cauliflower cooks, rinse the medium pot and place over medium heat. Add the oil, the garlic, and the onions. After about 5 minutes add the celery. Stir frequently.

Turn the cauliflower at least once (after 7 - 10 minutes) so that it is lightly browned on both sides. After roasting for about 15 minutes add the cauliflower to the onions and celery. Add the chicken stock, water, salt and pepper. Cook for about 20 minutes until the cauliflower is soft.

Blend until the soup is smooth using a stick or conventional blender. Return the soup to the pan and add the curry powder 1/4 teaspoon at a time.

Serve hot.

Recipe Notes

Curry powder is fantastic in this cauliflower soup. The combination of the roasted flavor of the vegetables and the spicy curry makes a perfect winter soup. I am careful about how much curry powder I add to my recipes as there are so many varieties now. One of my favorites is Machi and it is much more spicy. Try adding the curry powder 1/4 teaspoon at a time and stop when you like the taste.
