  • 1 large head cauliflower (about 2 pounds/1kg) broken into florets
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 large sweet onion diced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves pressed or minced
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 Tbsp curry blend
  • 1 piece of ginger 2inch (5cm) long, peeled and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Thai red curry paste or harissa paste
  • 3 cups low sodium veggie broth
  • 1 can (14oz/414g) coconut milk
  • Sea salt and pepper to your taste
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 red chili sliced to garnish
  • lime slices to garnish


  • Melt coconut oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 4-5 minutes. Add in garlic, ginger, turmeric powder, curry, and harissa/curry paste, then cook for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  • Add in the cauliflower and broth, and bring to a simmer.
  • Cover with a lid and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender.
  • Stir in the coconut milk, then remove from heat. Using a hand blender, process until it reaches a thick creamy consistency.
  • Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Ladle soup into bowls, sprinkle chili, fresh chopped cilantro and garnish with a few slices of lime. This soup is best served hot.


Please read the Tips & Tricks in the article before making this easy cauliflower soup recipe. Below is just a summary:
  1. To make the vegan cauliflower soup creamy, make it with canned coconut milk and simmer the cauliflower in broth until it gets really tender. See more at Tip #1.
  2. To thicken the Paleo cauliflower soup, make sure you don't add too much broth when simmering the cauliflower. For a large cauliflower head (about 2Lbs/1Kg) 3 cups of broth are enough. See more at Tip #2.
  3. This paleo cauliflower soup recipe has many immunity-boosting ingredients like garlic, turmeric and ginger.
  4. You can use other spices, like Italian seasoning, garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, smoked paprika, or roasted garlic. See more at Tip #4.
  5. You can serve this healthy cauliflower soup with a Thai salad. See more at Tip #5.
  6. To make it Whole30, make sure the coconut milk doesn't contain sulfates, sweeteners or additives.
  7. You can make it with roasted cauliflower, but this will add up to the cooking time.
