Cauliflower and Carrot Soup

This is a really simple soup great for this time of year, hubby was asking for a soup, so heres my new invention! I had a cauliflower and carrots on hand and coriander so made a nice comforting soup. Got to love soup as you can add almost anything!


  • 3 chopped carrots
  • one whole cauliflower chopped
  • one liter of vegetable stock
  • 1/2 a bunch of chopped coriander/cilantro
  • 1/2 a chopped onion
  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic

1. saute the onions and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes 
2. then add the cauliflower and carrots and mix
add the stock and coriander and simmer for 30 minutes until very soft
3. transfer to a blender to puree and serve :-) I added some creme fraiche at the end as well

Have a wonderful start to the week everyone

  1. fall is my favorite time of year to eat soup! i love that this recipe is so simple, too. :-)

  2. Rebecca this looks great! Nice recipe I love cauliflower and like it simple like this! I've even whizzed steamed cauliflower and a touch of good ranch dressing in a food processor for a quick healthy dip!

  3. Simple, healthy and delicious - and that creme fraiche didn't hurt.

  4. YUM! I have a soup very similar to this recipe, but with fresh ginger in it. The creme fraiche idea is great! Hope you had a great weekend!!

  5. Yumm Rebecca, looks rich and filling and perfect for fall! Thanks!

  6. love the colour and the combo...perfect to enjoy it this weather...

  7. How yummy! I made some carrot soup the other day too, but with lentils. Next time I shall try with cauliflowers! (I bet my husband wouldn't tell there's cauliflowers inside...a perfect way to "cheat" him to eat cauliflowers!)

  8. Great comfort food! I think even finicky kids can eat it :)

  9. Rebecca, I have to admit you're getting there and this soup sounds amazing. I would love to have a bowl or two. haha... I can actually feel the autumn at the other side of the globe. Time just flies, isn't it! Another Halloween will be coming soon. Hope you're enjoying your day.

  10. A great combination of ingredients and a perfect autumn soup. ;-) Have a great week!

  11. What a delicious combination of flavors. It is definitely soup weather where I live.

  12. Rebecca~ I love the addition of coriander! It sounds like a warm fuzzy blanket in a bowl!

  13. Mmmmmm, that looks wonderful! A beautiful bowl of creamy goodness. I love cauliflower and carrots so this sounds delicious to me.

  14. Sounds like a delicious soup, perfect for the slightly cooler weather. I love the color too!

  15. Such a lovely soup...I love creamy warm fall dishes like this :)

  16. Oh Rebecca, I made this soup before with garlic and onion in it. Will make this again because I love cauliflower.

  17. Mmmm...Now this is an autumn soup. Delicious. I just wish the weather here would cool down a bit so that I could make me some.

  18. I love how just about any veggie can be turned into a good soup. This sounds like an unlikely yet still delicious flavor pairing!

  19. Soup just goes with fall. Carrots and caulifower soup sounds wonderful and I love your addition of cilantro. Simple is what I need today.

  20. Great flavors in this. I've been trying to introduce more cauliflower into our house, and this looks like a great way to do it. Sounds like a yummy recipe!
