Creamy Cauliflower Soup
This soup is all kind of creamy without any of the unhealthy stuff. We roast the cauliflower to add an extra layer of flavour and then blend it with nutty coconut milk and flavourful chicken stock. It’s an easy weekday dinner or a quick lunch on the weekend. Serve with a side salad or garlic bread.
If you want to make this soup completely vegetarian or vegan then, substitute chicken stock with vegetable stock.
2 medium heads cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
2 garlic cloves
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cups chicken stock
1 cup coconut milk
1 ½ teaspoons seasoning salt
