Golden Curry Cauliflower Soup (recipe amount on right serves 40)
1 large head cauliflower ~6 heads cauliflower
1 Tblsp coconut oil ~ 6 Tblsp grapeseed oil
1 med onion, diced (about 1 cup) ~ 6 onions
2 lg carrots, peeled and diced (about 1 cup) ~ 12 carrots
2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed ~12 garlic
2 c vegetable broth ~12 c veg broth
1 c water ~ 6c water
1 tsp salt ~3 Tblsp salt
½ tsp gr pepper ~1 Tblsp pepper
1 tsp curry powder ~3 Tblsp curry powder
½ c canned coconut milk ~3c coconut milk
Wash and core cauliflower, then coarsely chop. Set aside.
Heat a large, deep pot over med-hi heat and add the coconut oil or grapeseed oil. When the oil is melted, add onions, carrots and garlic. Stir w a wooden spoon and cook until they’re soft and golden, about 5 min. Add the chopped cauliflower and cook until beginning to brown, about another 5 min.Add the broth and water, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook, covered, until the vegetables are very tender, about 45 min.
Puree the vegetables and broth in a blender or food processor. Be careful! Do this in batches and fill the canister only halfway, holding a towel over the lid while you puree. Hot soup expands in the canister and can spurt out if you’re not vigilant. When cooking the large batch, I divided it into 3 smaller pots and used my hand blender. It worked well.
Pour the puree back into the soup pot, then add the salt, pepper and coconut milk. Stir to combine and cook over medium heat until heated through. Serve immediately with garnishes or store covered in the refrigerator. To reheat, warm the soup gently over medium low heat until bubbly.
Garnishes include—chopped parsley and chopped walnuts
Toasted, slivered almonds and ghee
