Unbelievable Fat-Free Cauliflower Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Reddyrat

This is a simple, healthy recipe. I couldn't believe that cauliflower and water could be so creamy and flavorful. I added curry powder after pureeing the cauliflower. You could also add chicken boullion to the water and/or fresh herbs.

This is a good soup base, though it definitely needs jazzing up. I made liberal use of salt, cayenne pepper, curry, soy sauce, sriracha, and balsamic vinegar... and then I topped it off with parmesan shreds and toasted almond slices. After that, my family pronounced it good. This was on a night when my cauliflower-averse partner was on a busines trip to Antarctica; when he returns, I have a mind to make it and say it's potato soup and see if he buys it ;) Thanks for the recipe! I might try it with veggie broth instead of water next time.
