Dairy Free Cauliflower Cream Soup

There’s still a damp chill in the air and I’ll be darned if I don’t keep craving soups.  Considering its like -11 Celsius outside (before the wind chill factor!) and it seems like everyone ELSE in the world has warm weather, I deserve some comfort food. Cream soup. 

Now, if you have eliminated dairy from your diet,  you might notice that alot of recipes use nuts as a replacement…. the only thing is, of oucrse, about a bajillion people can’t eat nuts.  So, I figured, maybe I could mess around a bit and see what I can come up with.  Lo and Behold- I didn’t realize it but sunflower seed butter and tahini, in the right recipes, are together a delicious cream substitute! Who knew.?

The great thing about this recipe is that its so gosh darn flexible.  Vegan? Sub in vegetable broth. Can’t do potatoes? Sub in parsnips or a sweet potato, or if you are tuber-free, try chopped mushrooms.  Quinoa does bad things to you? (ahh that saponin! soak quinoa overnight and rinse well or your gut will let you know loud and clear that you forgot),  You can sub in barley, or, if you are gluten free, you can try millet.  Can’t do onions? Throw in a chopped leek or whole celery fronds for flavour (take out the celery before serving).  I love the flexibility! Its like a new soup everytime.

You’ll find that this is a total stick to your ribs kind of recipe.  I really only need one ladle full and that is more than enough.  Since this recipe makes like wackloads of soup, I like to freeze it in silicone muffin trays (the big muffin size), and then pop one out to take with me to heat up at lunch.  For the canucks out there- go for the PC brand ones at Loblaws.  They’re super.

Here we go!

  1. oh gosh- my mistake- you can add the cauliflower in to simmer with the broth at the same time as the potatoes. :)
