Healing Turmeric Cauliflower Soup

Author - Alyssa Rimmer

This creamy turmeric cauliflower soup is anti-inflammatory, healing for the gut and so delicious. It's also naturally vegan, packed with protein and simple to make!

In case you can't tell from my recent recipes, but I'm head over heels for turmeric these days (I'm looking at you Lemon Turmeric Quinoa…)! I add it to almost everything and I am seriously loving how I'm feeling.

Turmeric is an incredible spice that not only adds flavor and color, but it also has healing properties. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, as well as promoting joint, heart and lung health. It's been used in Eastern medicine practices for thousands of years!

And that's exactly why I'm calling this a healing turmeric cauliflower soup. Because it's good for your body and your soul!

How to make a healing Turmeric Cauliflower Soup with 100% plant-based ingredients!

The other secret ingredient in this soup? Almond Breeze's Almondmilk Cashewmilk blend!

You guys know how much I adore my creamy soups, and this blend is the perfect addition. It's thick and creamy, but without a ton of added fat or calories like you typically see in creamy soups – think heavy cream or coconut milk. By using this blend, we're able to still achieve that luxurious texture, but keep it light and healthy.

I'm super excited to be partnering with Almond Breeze for a series of six posts this year, showing you how you can use plant-based milk as a healthy substitute to dairy. And we're going beyond just smoothies and baking; I've got lots of savory meals planned and I can't wait to share them with you!

To make our cauliflower soup, we start by roasting the cauliflower with some garlic, shallots, oil and spices. This gives the soup a smokier flavor, while also meaning less hands-on time for you. Just chop, toss and roast!

Once your veggies are roasted, we start to assemble the soup. You just toss everything together in one pot – your veggies, red lentils, broth and non-dairy milk, and blend away.

I used an immersion blender for this one, but you could totally use your blender or food processor to get this texture. And in all honesty, you could also just leave it as is if you like chunky, brothier soups. Either way, it would be delicious!

I topped mine with some chopped kale (because I didn't have herbs on hand), some cracked pepper, a spritz of lime and a drizzle of the almondmilk cashewmilk blend.  Served with a slice of my favorite quinoa bread and ahhh…just delicious!

I've had it for two days straight and am already planning on making another batch this weekend. It's one of those soups that I know I'll keep coming back to because it makes me feel good from the inside out.

My belly is happy, my mind is happy and my soul is happy. Yep, it really is a healing soup!

  1. This recipe is delicious! I was so happy to find it. I recently had to get braces and can’t eat so many crunchy, chunky foods, so am making lots of soups. Thanks for a tasty, satisfying meal!

  2. Its so good! This is my third time cooking it and ive used 2 massive cauli heads and extra of all other ingredients as to have plenty on the freezer as it dissappears way to quick otherwise! Freezes well.
    Thanks heaps

  3. Have you (or anyone) tried freezing this soup? Seems like it might work, but I want to know if anyone has real results.
    Sounds like it will be fantastic.

  4. Hi! This recipe looks amazing. Is it ok to substitute the Unsweetened Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend for just Almond milk? I can’t seem to find it since I live in a very small town. Thank you!

  5. This is awesome, I got this recipe mixed with something else I was making at the same time and added 1tsp of Cayenne too!! I like my food spicy, so this was awesome. I’m planning on having it for lunch tomorrow

  6. Very tasty! I tend to like very flavorful, so I did add more tumeric, cumin, and a little cayenne at the end. And the optional lime is NOT optional, it is a MUST. The lime just adds such a great kick of flavor to it! We pairs it with a good sourdough toast. Great recipe, will definitely make again!

    (This is coming from a meat eater 🙂 )

  7. This soup is wonderful!! I could not find the Almondmilk Cashewblend milk, but I did find Silk’s Cashewmilk with a touch of Almond; it worked just fine. My veggies did not burn at 30 minutes, but they were quite roasted. I’m looking forward to eating the rest! Thanks for the delicious recipe.

  8. Really liked this soup. Next time I will try chicken stock since I am not a vegetarian. Very satisfying like a cream soup. I roasted the cauliflower, shallot and garlic for only 20 minutes,At 30 it would burn.
    Also added a pinch of cayenne and used 30 calorie unsweetened almond milk. Definitely would make again, very easy and quick

  9. Can you substitute vegetable broth for chicken broth or could you just skip it altogether? Not sure I would like it with vegetable broth?

  10. Sounds good, I love soup. I am not going to roast, – it is too hot hee to turn on the oven. I plan the make the recipe in my Kambrook soup pot, and then eat it cold. Could you please tell me of your formal qualifications. I am 80 yrs old, and some of your ideas are a bit too advanced for my poor old brain. Happy New Year.
