Vegan Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Soup | How to make it | Weight-Loss Friendly

Cauliflower soup rocks! King (or Queen) of lunchboxes! Cauliflower is a great vegetable! It has the consistency of potatoes but less than one-third of the calories per 100 grams, can be roasted, boiled, steamed just like them, and are very flavourful. Whenever I look to have a healthy cauliflower soup, either from a supermarket or a restaurant, there’s always cheese involved, which means a load of fats and calories added… plus the flavor of the cauliflower — which should be the main ingredient — disappears. I’ve been dreaming of making my own, perfect soup.. so the planning began. When thinking of how to make a light soup that has the great taste of the main course, but is light enough that can also be used as a starter… 1 — all other flavors that can deduct from such a great vegetable had to be removed; 2 — a cooking method that enhances it had to be used and, as per any respecting soup… 3 — a crunch — that doesn’t add many calories, …were all characteristics needed. So… I went on a mission and came up with this tasty dish down here! Hope you enjoy this vegan cauliflower soup! ~~ Love Cruciferous Veggies? Try this FAN-TAS-TIC Vegan Broccoli and Chili Pasta

Let’s talk nutrition!

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that is a source of many healthy nutrients, some of which may reduce the risk of multiple diseases, such as heart disease and cancer.

This vegetable, moreover, has a great consistency and is low in calories, making it weight-loss friendly; it is very easy to add to most diets as it can be cooked multiple ways and added to most dishes.

One cup of cauliflower contains about 10% of one’s daily dietary needs of fiber, at 3g; fiber is very important as it feeds healthy bacteria in the gut that help maintain a healthy digestive system and reduce inflammation.

A diet rich in fiber may help prevent conditions such as constipation and inflammatory bowel disease, while also promoting regular bowel movements; as fiber make one feel full for longer, consuming enough of it may help lose weight.

Cauliflower is also rich in antioxidants, which protect the cells of the body from free radicals, which are harmful, and inflammation.

Glucosinolates and Isothiocyanates are two groups of antioxidants cauliflower is rich in, that have been linked to slowing the growth of cancer cells, especially the ones of colon, breast, lung and prostate cancer.

Vitamin C is also found in cauliflower, which is itself an antioxidant; this vitamin is well-known for its anti-inflammatory effect that may assist in boosting the immune system and reducing the risk of heart disease.

Easy-Peasy Vegan Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Easy, vegan and healthy!

This recipe is EASY, TASTY, and VERY LOW IN CALORIES… what more can one ask for? Modifications and options of course!!

For a richer flavor, if you have a higher calorie allowance left, when blending add a teaspoon of butter, then cook for longer to thicken up. You will need to recalculate calories given the addition and, by reducing the water amount (or boiling it for longer to reduce), you may end up with 3 (or even 2 large) portions… if you have the allowance, trust me: this is TOTALLY worth it!

The lemon in this recipe will not only add that tad of tanginess, but it will also reduce the smell of the cauliflower, which sometimes can be a bit invasive and not really appreciated by everyone.

The amount of nutmeg in this recipe is not specified to the dot, as it depends on the personal taste and the strength of the nutmeg. If unsure, start with a very small amount and add if needed.

If you do not like spring onions, you can skip it and perhaps add some croutons, boiled rice, chopped coriander, red chili flakes, or… nothing! The soup is extremely tasty on its own.

If you have the time, energy, willingness to bring out your ‘milkshake-blender’ to blitz this soup, feel free to use it. This will ensure all pieces are nicely blitzed, you won’t get covered in cauliflower splashback (or is that just me?) and for some mysterious reason, the soup will be creamier.

If you are not following a vegan diet, have enough calories to spare and can have dairy, add a little piece of butter to this oven roasted cauliflower soup recipe… there’s no need to add too much of it, it will still be the best roasted cauliflower recipe you’ve ever had!
