Tips

  • Bake the cauliflower in the oven before adding it to the soup. This will tenderize the cauliflower.
  • Do not overcook the cauliflower. This can cause the soup to turn bitter.
  • Reserve some of the roasted cauliflower to add texture to the soup. Puree it and add the soup.
  • Add cream, coconut milk, cream of coconut or cashew cream to make a creamy soup.
  • You can reduce the amount of water to make a thick soup.
  • If the soup is too watery, add cornstarch to thicken it. Mix the cornstarch with water and add it to the soup.
  • You can also make a roux to thicken the soup. Prepare a roux with butter, flour, and milk. You can take a look at our article 'How to Make a Roux?'.
  • You can also use broth or low-sodium chicken stock instead of vegetable broth.
  • You can add vegetables such as potatoes, carrots or celery. Roast all the vegetables before adding them to the recipe. Vegetables will be tender as a result of this.
