Cauliflower Soup: dairy free, gluten free and egg free

cauliflower soup
Creamy Cauliflower Soup is something I used to have often for a quick winter lunch when I was working in busy kitchens, and along with Jerusalem Artichoke soup (with lashings of truffle oil) would have to be one of my favourite soups of all time 🙂 I happened to have nearly a whole head of cauliflower wasting away in my fridge and a container of chicken stock left over from something I made yesterday, so even though it’s not really soup weather here right now, I thought I’d see if it was a winner for the kids. Two out of three can eat cauliflower and they both seemed to like it..I thought it was fab so definitely a winner! The coconut cream and the Moroccan spice sort of balanced each other out so it was neither really ‘coconutty’ or spicy, just really smooth and creamy. I served mine with roasted cauliflower, bacon pieces and salted whipped coconut cream with chopped chives which was a bit super naughty and nice, but you don’t have to.

  1. 1/2 large head cauliflower, chopped into smallish pieces
  2. 3 cups chicken stock
  3. 1/4-1/2 teaspoon Moroccan spice blend (depending how spicy you like it)
  4. 2 medium onions, diced roughly
  5. 1/2 cup coconut cream
  6. salt and pepper, to taste
  1. 1. In a large frying pan or wok, sweat the onions with a bit of oil until translucent but not coloured.
  2. 2. Add the cauliflower pieces and cook for a further 5 minutes, still without any colour. You will need to stir frequently.
  3. 3. Add the chicken stock, bring to the boil then transfer to a pot. Turn down the heat a bit, add a lid and simmer until the cauliflower is cooked through; mine took about 25 minutes.
  4. 4. Turn off the heat, and add the coconut cream. Blend with a stick blender or food processor.
  5. 5. Adjust the seasoning and serve.
  1. *If you don't have Moroccan spice blend, you can make your own by blending ground cumin, cinnamon, ground cloves, ground ginger, ground coriander and cayenne together.
  2. * I roasted slices of cauliflower in the spice blend and olive oil for the top of the soup, along with whipped coconut cream which I had added salt and chopped chives to. I also added fried bacon pieces.

    This soup looks great! Any day is a good day for soup, I make a pot every week all year. I love that you use coconut creme, this must be the secret ingredient! I will definitely give this a try, my daughter has a dairy allergy so she misses out on “creme” soups.

      Awww thank you! And yes, coconut cream is definitely your friend if you have dairy allergies in the house! I am so grateful none of my family have a coconut allergy….
