Cauliflower Spinach Soup (Vegan)

by thisjess.cooks

Soup is one of my absolute favorite things to make. It’s easy, is a good way to use up odds and ends in the kitchen, and keeps well (with one pot, you can have lunch for a whole week that’s just as good three days later!). My latest creation: a spinch and cauliflower soup that hits all the marks!

This soup is dairy-free and can also be vegan (just use vegetable stock) — the best of both worlds!

Instructions

For the Roasted Chickpeas

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Drain and rinse your chickpeas. Spread the chickpeas on a kitchen towel and gently pat dry (watch out: damp chickpeas will not crisp up in the oven!)
  • Transfer chickpeas to a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cumin, paprika and salt (you can be generous!). Toss evenly to coat.
  • Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, or until crispy. Set aside to cool.

For Cauliflower Spinach Soup

  • In a large dutch oven or soup pot, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and cauliflower and saute for approximately 10 minutes. Stir in cashews and spinach.
  • Add 4 cups vegetable or chicken stock and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then partially cover and reduce to a simmer for about 15 minutes until the cauliflower is soft.
  • Remove from heat and blend until smooth.
  • Serve topped with roasted chickpeas, a drizzle of olive oil and coconut milk, and a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and paprika. Enjoy!
