An easy, low carb and Paleo, vegetarian Cumin Cauliflower and Coconut Soup that makes a delicious lunch or dinner.
I love having soup ready in the fridge or freezer for quick meals and snacks. Lately I have been making lots of cauliflower based soups since it is the perfect thing to make a nice thick and creamy soup without all the calories and fat. Normally I reach for curry with cauliflower soup, but this time I wanted to mix things up and decided to use smoky cumin and sweet coconut milk instead. I prefer it without any added sweetness but you could add a touch of maple syrup or brown sugar to sweeten things up. You could also add some protein by adding toasted chickpeas, tofu, roasted chicken, or lean sausage.
