Recipe: Vegan Cauliflower Soup

I made a great soup recently that fits perfectly in the Belly Fat Cure. I saw the recipe in Huffington Post's Food section which always has great articles that are relevant to a low sugar life style. The recipe looked great as is, but I modified it a bit to make it Vegan (and lower in sugar) and not use any animal products.

The original recipe can be found HERE, but since my Husband is vegan I wanted to make it for us both. I get tired of making a version of things for me and a slightly different version for him. (When I served it I did add smoked salmon on top to mine as the original suggested, which made it perfect!)

Vegan Cauliflower Soup:
Ingredients:
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 6 Cups Water
  • Salt
  • 1 cube Vegetable bullion
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Almond, Soy or Hemp milk
  • 1/2 Cup White Wine
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled & chopped
  • 4oz Smoked Salmon (just for me, Not Vegan)
Directions: Rinse cauliflower and chop into large chunks. Add cauliflower, garlic and pinch of salt to water and boil for up to 10 minutes. Until cauliflower is soft. Remove cauliflower into a blender with a small about of the water and blend until smooth. Keep remaining water, add vegetable bullion and wine, bring to a boil and reduce a small amount. Add smooth cauliflower mixture back to pot with bullion. Add unsweetened milk replacement. Bring to boil and then it is ready to serve.

This was really, really good! So creamy, and tasty. The salmon added just the right amount of salt for me too. I've made it twice now, and the first time and that was the best.

Do you have a soup recipe that fits the Belly Fat Cure? I find the The Skinny Bitch diet books have some really good Low Sugar Vegan recipes. I use it frequently to cook for my Husband.

  1. Hmmm, That sounds very interesting and good. I will have to try it. The one thing I do miss on The BFC is soup. My favorite was split pea. If you know how to make that on the BFC I would love to know how.
    Thanks Amber, Have a great day!!

  2. Mmmm sounds delicious!! I miss clam chowder, but sometimes it can be to high in carbs or sugars for the amount I could eat. Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. I would think you could add clams inplace of the salmon and a tiny bit of finely choppped celery and have a version of Clam Chowder.
    I'm going to try this tonight - THANKS for sharing, Amber.
