"Creamy" Cauliflower Soup (Vegan)

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

It is quickly becoming soup weather just as massive cauliflower are out in full force at the farmers market. Cauliflower is not only a great liver detoxifier, it also makes things creamy without dairy.

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

1 Tbs. Olive Oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 large head of cauliflower, washed and chopped
2 c. vegetable broth*
2 c. cashew milk or your favorite organic milk/ milk alternative
1 Tbs. Arrowroot Powder (optional)
1 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste

Sauté onions in oil on low in a large soup pot until translucent, about 5-10 minutes. Add Cauliflower, broth and cashew milk. Bring to a boil and then simmer until tender (15 minutes).
Pureé in pot if you have an immersion blender or transfer to a blender. Whisk in arrowroot powder until it is dissolved if you have it (it will make the soup extra thick). Then stir in salt. Sprinkle with pepper before serving.

*I generally use an organic gluten-free bullion. It's cheaper, better for the environment because it's lighter to ship and better for your back if you carry your groceries home from the market.
