Keep it simple: A head of cauliflower whirled in a blender with collard greens becomes a virtuous soup, ready in 20 minutes. The cauliflower's texture makes this dairy-free soup creamy.

Instructions Checklist

  • Bring to a boil over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons dill. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until cauliflower is just tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in greens, and simmer for 3 minutes.

  • Let sit for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons dill. Puree soup in batches in a blender until very smooth, adding more water (about 1/2 cup) if it's too thick. Return to pot, and reheat. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with dill, black pepper, a drizzle of oil, and pinch of sea salt.

This is quite possibly the most disgusting soup I've ever attempted. The creaminess claim is a lie, and the soup tasted like straight-up dill. There was no other flavor. Unless you feel like drinking liquified grass clippings, don't bother with this one. It's a waste of time, effort, and money.

Martha, did you taste this soup? Awful. I used chicken broth to give it more flavor. Didn't work. I added sherry....didn't work. No way it pureed into a brilliant green unless you added food coloring. A waste of 4 hours and $$.

I've been in a cauliflower mood and this was a nice, delicately flavored soup. I added a couple of tables[filtered]s of tahini...I think I had a bit too much water and it needed a little more flavor and creaminess. Delish!

Really a great recipe. I like finding new ways to include veggies in my diet. Very simple to make. This was a winner for sure. Will be remaking.

This soup is excellent! I did change a few things- used half vegetable broth and half water, added more kale and dill and salt to taste. its a great dairy free soup that has a creamy texture!

I love this soup! I add extra garlic and onions and use leeks, green onion, and yellow onion. It is delicious! I love that it is low calorie and low fat. I do add salt to taste as I eat it. It is delicious - especially with a smidge of parmesan or feta cheese when served! I eat this pretty much every day - I don't particularly like greens - kalle, collard greens - but I don't even taste it in this soup. I definitely recommend trying this!

This soup is fantastic and so incredibly creamy it's hard to believe there isn't any milk or cream. I did add more greens than what is called for (beet greens and chard) and used vegetable broth instead of plain water (a bit extra too, to accommodate the extra veggies). Excellent soup, definitely one we'll make again and again!
