Curried Cauliflower Lentil Soup


1. Heat a large pot (or Dutch oven) over medium heat. Once hot, add oil, onion, carrots, and celery (optional) and sauté for 4-5 minutes — stirring occasionally. Then add ginger and garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes more or until fragrant.

2. Add cauliflower, curry powder, cayenne (optional), broth, lentils, and salt. Bring to a low boil over medium heat and then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until lentils and cauliflower are tender.

3. Add coconut cream and blend with an immersion blender until creamy and no bits remain (if it has trouble blending, you can optionally transfer to a blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth).

4. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more curry powder for spice, cayenne for heat, or salt for overall flavor. Continue cooking for a few more minutes over medium heat.

5. Serve as is or with garnish of choice (we went with fresh cilantro and an additional swirl of coconut milk). Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer up to 1 month.
