Baked Potato Cauliflower Soup

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium head cauliflower roughly chopped
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt to taste


  • Shredded vegan cheddar cheese
  • Finely chopped vegetarian bacon
  • Minced chives


  1. Add olive oil to a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute for about 2-3 minutes until softened. Add garlic and saute for another minute.

  2. Add cauliflower, broth, coconut milk, bay leaf, nutmeg and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is quite soft.

  3. Remove soup from heat and discard bay leaf Blend soup until completely smooth using an immersion blender, or transfer to a blender and blend in batches. If soup is too thick, add more broth gradually for a thinner consistency, or continue to cook and reduce slightly for a thicker texture. Taste and season again if necessary

  4. Ladle into bowls and top with vegan cheddar, vegan bacon and chives.

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure you don't brown the garlic when sauteeing or it will taste bitter. 
  • Use full-fat coconut milk to make this potato cauliflower soup recipe dairy-free without compromising on the creaminess.
  • Select a clean, firm, compact head of cauliflower. It should be white or creamy-white. Avoid heads that are soft, have brown coloring or small dark spots on the curds.
  • I recommend you make this recipe with a low-sodium broth at its base. This allows you to adjust the seasoning at the end of cooking, while still keeping the sodium levels in check.
