I found this recipe on the Vegetarian Times website. While I’m not a vegetarian anymore, I do like vegetarian meals once in awhile. And I especially love soups (and curry).
- 2 Tbs. olive oil
- 1 small onion, chopped (1 cup)
- 1 medium tart apple, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped (1 cup)
- 1 Tbs. curry powder
- 1 clove garlic, sliced (1 tsp.)
- 1 large head cauliflower, chopped into 1-inch pieces (6 cups)
- 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
- 1 tsp. honey or agave nectar
- 1 tsp. rice wine vinegar

1. Heat oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 to 7 minutes, or until soft and golden. Stir in apple, curry powder, and garlic, and cook 2 minutes more, or until curry powder turns deep yellow.
2. Add cauliflower and vegetable broth, and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes. Cool 20 minutes, then blend in food processor or blender until smooth. Stir in honey and vinegar, and season with salt, if desired.
I almost called this post “They Can’t All Be Winners.”
I found this recipe a few weeks ago and was really excited to make it. I was on a curry kick when I found the recipe. I think part of my problem is that by the time I made the recipe I was no longer obsessed with curry.
With bacon. 🙂 I enjoyed a glass of chardonnay with dinner too.
So dinner was finally ready. I put some in my Magic Bullet to puree and it worked a lot better this time. I pureed it and pour it back into the pot and mixed it all together. It made it much creamier.
The funny thing? Michael LOVED the soup. I was “meh” about it. I felt it was really bland and plain and I could not figure out what the soup needed to make it better. Michael said maybe it needed to be spicy. I’m not sure.
I went to Facebook and the unanimous consensus from my friends was that the soup needed bacon. Which is also funny because I found the recipe in Vegetarian Times. 😉
I doubt I’d make the recipe again. It wasn’t bad by any means, just boring.
QUESTION: What do you think is missing from this soup?
