Curried Cauliflower Soup with Kale

Quick post for my new soup recipe. Love this one because it includes my two favorite spices- cinnamon, which helps lower blood sugar levels, and turmeric, which decreases inflammation in the body thanks to curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric. It’s also super yummy and perfect on a cold winter day…

Hope you stay warm with this Curried Cauliflower Soup with Kale!

Ingredients

  • One medium head of cauliflower, cored—cut into 1-inch florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely grated fresh ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 quart vegetable stock
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped kale

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. In a medium baking dish, toss the cauliflower florets with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper and roast for about 20 minutes, until tender and slightly browned.
  3. In a large pot, heat the remaining 1 tablespoons of olive oil, add the onion and cook over medium heat, cook for 5 minutes, then add the ginger, garlic, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, allspice, and paprika and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Add the wine and cook until evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the cauliflower, potatoes, bay leaf and stock and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat until the vegetables are very tender, about 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf.
  6. Puree half of the soup with an immersion blender (blender will work too) until smooth and silky. If using a blender, return the pureed soup to the pot and add the coconut milk and kale. Season with salt and pepper and simmer over low heat until kale is wilted, for about 5 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!

Happy cooking,

Joanna
