Since first making this cauliflower soup recipe a few years ago, it's become a staple around our house. It's one of those feel good meals that we always crave.
Why we love roasted curried cauliflower soup
- It's all warm and creamy and Thai flavor-y dreamy. If you like Thai curries, you will love this.
- Made with a base of cauliflower and coconut milk, so it's a super creamy cauliflower soup that is 100% dairy-free.
- On a hot and sunny day, you can serve this soup cold. I like to thin it out a little more when serving it cold, but even as is it is still very good.
- Carrots and onions add just the right amount of sweetness and the heat level can easily be adjusted to your taste by adding more or less Thai curry paste.
- It freezes very well. Make a big batch and freeze some in resealable bags (we love these large Stasher freezer bags!) for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. You'll be so happy you did!

How to make roasted curried cauliflower soup
- Roughly chop some cauliflower, toss it in oil and salt, and put it in your oven. Don't even wait for the oven to preheat, it can do that while the cauliflower starts to cook.
- Cook the onions, carrots, and garlic then add the spices to the pot. Deglaze the pan with a little stock. Add the rest of the stock then walk away until the cauliflower finishes roasting. I'd pour myself a glass of wine. Just sayin'.
- Add the cauliflower to the pot and puree the soup until it is creamy. Add the coconut milk and season with some sea salt.
- Pour yourself another glass of wine then sit down to dinner!
