Curry Cauliflower Soup {Vegan}

While the list of ingredients seems lengthy, this soup is fairly easy to make. The longest process is to caramelize the onions though it is largely hands-off. Don't skip this step, however, as it add a delicate sweetness to the dish.You can also make this soup the day before you need to serve it.


Ingredients

  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced, approximately 1 C while raw
  • olive oil
  • 1 can organic coconut milk
  • 2 C organic vegetable broth
  • water, as needed
  • 1/4 t ground cardamom
  • 1/2 t ground turmeric
  • 1/2 t ground coriander
  • 1/2 t ground ginger
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1 t ground smoked paprika
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • freshly ground salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • organic grapes, quartered lengthwise, to garnish
  • green onions, thinly sliced, to garnish
  • sliced almonds, to garnish
  • kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced, to garnish*

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Quarter the cauliflower head and place on a parchment-linked baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil.


Roast until softened and beginning to brown slightly, approximately 50 to 60 minutes. In the meantime, caramelized your onions. The trick to caramelizing onions: low heat for a long time.

Place a tablespoon of olive oil in a flat bottom pan. Add the onions and stir to coat completely with oil. Spread the onions out over the bottom of the pan. Stirring occasionally, the onions will turn from white to clear, then golden and, finally, to a deep caramel brown. It might take 40 to 60 minutes.


In batches, blend cauliflower and onions with vegetable broth until smooth. Use water if it's still too thick. Place the blended cauliflower in a large soup pot. Pour in coconut milk.

Season with spices, then with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.

Serve hot or at room temperature. To serve, ladle soup into bowls. Garnish with a sprinkling of green onions, sliced almonds, grapes, and kaffir lime leaves.


*Note: if you cannot find fresh kaffir lime leaves, use lime zest to add the burst of citrus.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
