Get set for this curry cauliflower soup to become your default bowl of silky goodness. Perfect for autumn days, it's simple, satisfyingly easy and, I'm willing to bet, uses ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen. I'd say the ultimate lazy-but-nutritious meal has arrived!
If you've reintroduced cumin and coriander, be sure to put them to use here. I'm crazy about these spices, their earthiness works so well with cauliflower - especially when roasted.
If you haven't started reintroductions yet, or haven't prioritized these spices, put them at the top of your list. Don't worry though, this curry cauliflower soup retains goodness status without cumin and coriander, so don't let that be a deal breaker in getting those veggies into the oven!

Why is this curry cauliflower soup so good for you?
Cauliflower is part of the cruciferous family, a nutritional group powerhouse that's valuable for supporting the health of our gut, heart and immune system. Cruciferous veggies are high in antioxidants thus helping to reduce the risk of cancer. They also aid the detoxification process . You could take the quicker route by steaming the cauliflower, but you'll miss out on a lot of flavour. Roasting really turns up the volume!
Onions are alliums, and hold sulphur compounds which guard our immune defence and help fight inflammation. They are another veggie that I much prefer roasted.
Bone broth contains amino acids and easily absorbed trace minerals. It's also rich in collagen and gelatin which helps repair tissues and joints, and aid the digestive process. Making your own is far superior to most store bought versions, and much cheaper too. I make mine in my Instant Pot in as little as 90 minutes. If you don't own an Instant Pot, I highly recommend you get one, even if you only use it for broth making.
Can I freeze this recipe?
Yes absolutely, in fact make batches and stash portions of this curry cauliflower soup for future meals. Batch cooking is your AIP secret weapon, as it saves you hours in the long run.
What if I'm on the elimination phase?
No problem whatsoever, the soup is still delicious without the cumin and coriander. I promise!
