I love making and enjoying different soup recipes from around the world. As the days will start getting colder you will see more and more easy comforting soup recipes on my blog.
Today I am sharing another very easy and tasty vegan soup recipe- roasted cauliflower soup.
Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables and I have shared it many times on my blog that it’s one of the reasons why I love the winter season so much. In India, you get the freshest and tastiest cauliflower during winters.
Though now all the fruits and vegetables are available throughout the year, it’s best to eat seasonal produce. They not only taste best in their actual season but also have maximum health benefits during that time.
I grew up eating only seasonal fruits and vegetables and still try to follow that.
That’s the reason this vegan cauliflower soup and other cauliflower recipes will be cooked more frequently in my kitchen as the days will start getting colder.
Ingredients needed and substitute suggestions
This roasted cauliflower soup recipe needs only the following ingredients:
- White onion: You can use any type of onion but red onion is not recommended as it will change the color of the soup.
- Garlic: Adjust the amount depending upon your taste preference. I love garlic so add a lot of it.
- Ginger powder: I have used ground ginger in the recipe. You can also add freshly grated ginger. Ginger and cauliflower taste really good together.
- Vegetable stock
- Coconut milk: You can also use any other plant-based milk of your choice. Non-vegans may use cream or milk too.
- Dried thyme: Feel free to season it with any other spice or dried herb of your choice like cinnamon, nutmeg, etc
- Ground pepper
- Cooking oil: I have used olive oil, use whichever cooking oil your prefer.
Recipe tips and tricks
- If you don’t have a hand blender, use a countertop blender.
- Blend the soup until it’s very smooth and creamy.
- If using a hand blender, never lift the blender up when it’s on. Switch it off when the blades are still inside the soup and then only lift it up.

- Add coconut milk, mix, and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Check and adjust the seasoning. Switch off the gas.

- You can also use a stand blender to blend this soup.
