Creamy Curried Cauliflower Soup

Nothing says weekend like a bowl of made-from-scratch soup paired with a freshly baked baguette. After a busy Saturday morning rushing to the kids’ swimming and athletic classes I was in the mood for a simple, soul-warming kind of lunch (especially as we near the end of a straight week of rain here in Vancouver, sigh). I admit I’m also a bit obsessed with curry these days…

In the spirit of craving a soul-warming soup with an Indian-inspired twist, I decided to create this Creamy Curried Cauliflower Soup. Sautéed onions, leek and ginger along with a blend of curry paste, coconut milk and lime juice are added to gently cooked cauliflower and potatoes to create a rich, creamy soup with a delicate balance of curry flavour. Ready in just under 20 minutes, this soup is going to be one of my go-to recipes on a weeknight when we’re craving comfort food without a lot of preparation time.

We’d love to know how this recipe turns out for you so please share your comments if you give this a try!
