Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Curry Soup

Rich in beta-carotene the sweet potato has a lot of health benefits.  High in vitamin A, anti-inflamatory properties, antioxidants, low-gylcemic index, they are easy to cook and can be used in many recipes or just baked as you would for a regular potato.

Cauliflower is an excellent source of Vitamin K, high anti-inflamatory/anti-oxidant properties, fiber and provides good support to the digestive system.

Combining these two vegetables makes a delicious soup.  This simple recipe came from the website Kitchen to Table.    It's a Rose Reisman recipe.

It's deliciously smooth and creamy soup (without any dairy products) with a hint of curry.

Cook Time:30 mins Servings:6
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp medium curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 3 1/2 cups diced sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp honey
Garnish
  • 3 Tbsp lower-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1. In a large nonstick saucepan sprayed with vegetable spray, heat the oil. Sauté the garlic and onion until softened, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the curry powder, cinnamon, salt, pepper, cauliflower, stock, sweet potatoes and honey and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Transfer to a food processor and purée until creamy and smooth. Return to the saucepan and thin with more stock if desired.
3. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and cilantro.
