In this healthy cauliflower soup recipe, roasting the cauliflower first adds depth and prevents the florets from turning to mush. A little tomato sauce and coconut milk give the broth a rich, silky texture. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt, if desired.

  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1½ teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1¼ teaspoons salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 6 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup diced carrot
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1½ teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 fresh red chile pepper, such as serrano or jalapeño, minced, plus more for garnish
  • 1 (14 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 cups diced peeled russet potatoes ( ½-inch)
  • 3 cups diced peeled sweet potatoes ( ½-inch)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine coriander, cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, salt, pepper and cayenne in a small bowl. Toss cauliflower with 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the spice mixture and toss again. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast the cauliflower until the edges are browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrot and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, stirring often, until the onion is soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, chile and the remaining spice mixture. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute more.
  4. Stir in tomato sauce, scraping up any browned bits, and simmer for 1 minute. Add broth, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lime zest and juice. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, partially covered and stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
  5. Stir in coconut milk and the roasted cauliflower. Return to a simmer to heat through. Serve garnished with cilantro and chiles, if desired.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 5 days.

I absolutely loved this soup. The flavor profile blew me away! I have been vegan for several years and hearty food can be difficult to come by. This soup was very filling, and great for a winter dinner. I used a jalapeno for my soup, and served it with halved pitas baked for about 10 minutes in the oven with Earth Balance , salt, and fresh garlic. This will be a new staple for me!

I’ve been trying to go vegan for awhile now. I’ve been a vegetarian for three years and this recipe might make this journey even easier. Love love love this!

I love that the cauliflower was roasted, since overcooking can cause the sulfuric smell. The only change I made was omitting the red chile pepper and felt like it still had enough heat!

Delicious soup!!! I did do a few changes: I omitted the russet potatoes I added 1 medium leek halved and sliced ( incorporate it with the onion) and only 3/4 of 1 onion. I used the better than bouillon low sodium vegetable broth

Loved this recipe! Made it exactly as written, no tweaks. The spice level was great. This will definitely be going in my fall/winter dinner rotation.

Very flavourful. Wanted it to be more of a thick stew so reduced the broth a bit but added a tsp of vegetable bullion. Added fresh spinach and chick peas at the end. Served over rice. Everyone loved it. Will make again.

This is an easy and wonderful recipe. The spices interspersed throughout the cauliflower made it hard to not eat them before putting in the batch. I don't have any suggestions on tweaking a perfect recipe. Thanks for sharing. J
