  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder, cauliflower, water, and broth; cover, and bring to a boil. Uncover, lower heat, and simmer 5 minutes.

  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer 3 cups cauliflower to a bowl, and set aside. Put remaining florets into a blender or food processor, add 1 teaspoon salt, and process until smooth. Stir puree into broth in pan, and reheat if necessary. Ladle soup into bowls, and top with reserved florets and parsley.

I made this when I first saw it in Everyday Food. This soup is so wonderful. People in my family who hate Cauliflower even ate and loved this soup! A great winter treat!

This soup is really easy to make, but I felt it was missing sometihng. Maybe add some spice, or even coconut to go with the curry flavour? I prefer the curried carrot soup on this website!

Very good! and easy to boot. The roasted cauliflower is awesome. I had to forego the chicken stock due to Easter fasting, and though I am sure it is even better with it, feel it wasn't missed. Yum
