I got hungry, so I cooked a big pot of one of my favorite comfort foods: creamy cauliflower soup – but the twist is that this one is actually vegan!

Here’s the recipe so you can make it too:


1 head of cauliflower (chopped into pieces)
3 carrots (chopped coarsely)
1 c celery (chopped coarsely)
2 leeks (chopped coarsely)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
2 tbsp of your favorite salt-free seasoning blend
2 c carrot juice
4 c water (if your eating plan allows, you can substitute low-sodium organic chicken broth)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 c raw cashews
4 c baby spinach


Put all the ingredients (except the cashews and the spinach) in a large pot.

Bring to the boil, cover and reduce heat, simmer for approx 15 minutes or until the veggies are just tender.

Transfer 1/3 of the veggies and 1/3 of the liquid to a bowl and set aside. Add the cashews to the pot, and using a soup stick blend until smooth and creamy. (You can also use a blender or food processor, returning the blended soup to the pot.)

Return the veggies and liquid that you set aside back to the pot, and stir in the spinach. Simmer for five more minutes until hot and the spinach has wilted.

I’m really not a big fan of salt, but I could see that some may want to add some to these veggies. I suggest letting each person add to their serving at the table that way everyone gets to choose how much they use if any.

  1. when you make a document to print, you should leave out all those giant photos. we get it. i just needed the instructions not to print FOUR (4) pages of giant photos with very little text. thanks for the recipe. i cut and pasted into a doc and printed it myself, without wasting paper and tons of ink.

    1. Notice that when you push the green print friendly button at the bottom there is an option to remove images before printing. Hope that helps you in the future.
