Why I Love This Soup

I was fighting a cold a few weeks ago and I made this soup on repeat! It’s super simple to make and I like that it’s completely plant-based. Curry powder, with its blend of spices like turmeric, cumin, and coriander may offer some health benefits such as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, supporting heart health and digestive functions. Fresh ginger can help with digestion and it has anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. Both ingredients contribute to a nutritious diet, which is why I love adding them to this soup! If you enjoy this soup, try my curried chickpea soup or my creamy broccoli and cauliflower soup next!

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Olive oil- Serves as the cooking fat to sauté the onion, adding flavor and richness to the soup. You could substitute with another neutral oil or you could make this recipe oil-free by cooking the onion in a little bit of vegetable broth instead.
  • Onion- Provides a savory base for the soup, contributing to its overall flavor. You could substitute with a shallot for a more mild flavor.
  • Ginger- Freshly grated ginger adds a warm, aromatic flavor and offers potential health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Curry powder- Adds a blend of spices, enhancing the soup with depth and warmth. This is essential to a flavorful soup so be sure you’re using a fresh, high-quality curry powder.
  • Vegetable broth– Forms the liquid base of the soup, infusing it with savory and aromatic flavors. I like Edward & Son’s “not chicken” broth as well as the Better than Boullion vegetable broth base.
  • Cauliflower– This provides a hearty texture to the soup. I used fresh cauliflower, but you can use frozen cauliflower florets.
  • Cashews- Blended cashews add creaminess to the soup, contributing to its rich and velvety consistency. You can substitute the cashews with heavy cream or coconut milk.
  • Lemon juice- Brightens the flavors and adds a hint of acidity to balance the richness of the soup.
