Creamy Potato & Cauliflower Soup

Must be something in the food, cuz once folks go plant-based they get inspired to share what they’re eating and what they’ve learned – and to then want to showcase what all of us other plant-based cooks and bakers are creating!  Case in point is the new site, Our Vegitable, from Danielle at Baking Backwards.  Danielle told me a few months back about this new site she was developing – and it sounded like a fantastic idea.  I couldn’t wait for it to launch.  Like Finding Vegan or Foodgawker, bloggers submit their food photos – but unlike those two sites, Our Vegitable digs a little deeper.  Accepted submissions include a description of the recipe along with a blurb about the author.  A link takes the reader to the source of the recipe, i.e., the blog or website.  The other cool thing Danielle did was to break the submissions down into the following categories:


See what she did there?  It’s a full week of meals!  And, yep, you can even submit product reviews!  Our Vegitable really showcases the recipes and the bloggers who created them.  Just like the other food photo sites, you can pick up a badge to add to your blog that will send your readers straight to your gallery of photos.  Consider this your engraved invitation to submit your recipes!  For the full details on how/where to submit your yummies, go here.  Oh, and this soup here?  I submitted it.

Creamy Potato & Cauliflower Soup
Serves 6-8

splash of Bragg Liquid Aminos
splash water or vegetable broth
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
5 cloves garlic, minced
3 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped
4 cups vegetable broth
1 cup water
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 large head cauliflower, chopped
ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk (I used soy)
1/4 cup vegan Parmesan-style cheese (I used Go Veggie!)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
green onions, chopped, for garnish
coconut bacon, for garnish

Preheat oven to 450F.  Coat cauliflower with the 1 tsp. olive oil and place in a shallow baking pan.  Bake for about 30 minutes, turning once, until browned and tender.  Set aside to cool slightly.

In a large pot, saute the onions, thyme, smoked paprika, and garlic in the Liquid Aminos and water/broth for about 5 minutes.  Add the potatoes, vegetable broth, water, bay leaf and pepper.  Cover the pot, reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are very tender.  Remove the bay leaf and discard.

While the potatoes cook, put the roasted cauliflower in a blender with the non-dairy milk, vegan Parm, nutritional yeast, and process until very smooth.  Pour this mixture into a large bowl.  Once the potatoes are very tender, carefully blend in batches and pour into the bowl with the cauliflower mixture.  Pour it all back into the pot and gently warm, adjusting the seasonings to taste.

Divide soup into bowls and top with green onions and coconut bacon.

    Looks delicious and belly warming on a cold winter day. I’ll have to duckduckgo Coconut Bacon – you mention it like it’s so common… I feel left out, totally ignorant having never heard of it before.

  2. Richa says:

    that looks like a perfect soup with that coconut bacon on it.
    i like the name of the site.. it reminds me of the frequently used spelling back home. We drank a lot of visitable juice back then ;)

  3. This soup is So me! I can just imagine it simmering on the stove top on a cold day and the smell of those potatoes making my stomach growl….yum! I’d add a big pinch of black pepper to my bowl (never waste an opportunity to make food spicy) We’re in our first cold snap here in D.C. and this sounds like it will be dinner Wednesday night. Love the splash of Braggs!

  4. Laura says:

    I’ve been needing to make coconut bacon – this looks like the perfect recipe!

  5. What a beautiful looking soup, and that blog sounds like a great idea.

  6. I love creamy soups that have no cream in them! And cauliflower is one of my favorites for soup. You’re making me want to leave my office and start on Thanksgiving cooking now! ;)

    I find that plant based meals are so much more desirable to recreate and enjoy for me and the photos are always amazing! It’s like a mini challenge too being able to share with non plant based eaters and having them love what you’ve made!

  14. The perfect winter soup – yum and with coconut bacon on top :-) Im in love!
