How to Make Coconut Curry Cauliflower Soup

How to Make Coconut Curry Cauliflower Soup

A satisfying, exotic and healthy soup that’s sure to fit any special diet because it’s dairy free, gluten free, grain free, and vegan. It’s also great for veggie lovers like me :). Made with coconut milk and oil, this soup is loaded with lauric acid and medium chain fatty acids that are easy to digest (great for little ones!) while also being antimicrobial. The curry and ginger add a kick as well as reduces inflammation in the body while providing a healthy dose of antioxidants. Woo hoo!

Oh, and did I mention, it’s easy to make?


  • 1 large organic head cauliflower
  • 3 large organic stalks of celery
  • 4 large organic carrots
  • 1 large organic yellow onion
  • about an inch of ginger root
  • organic curry powder
  • coconut milk
  • coconut oil
  • salt (sea or kosher)

Interested in making your own coconut milk? See my video on how to do so.


  • Wash and coarsely chop all vegetables.
  • Steam cauliflower till soft in stock pot with 3 cups of water and 1 cup of coconut milk (about 30 minutes)
  • Saute onion, celery and carrot in coconut oil till they’re caramelized (about 30 minutes)
  • Add the sauteed veggies to the stock pot.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of grated ginger and 2-3 teaspoons of curry powder.
  • Blend with immersion blender or in regular blender till smooth.
  • Salt to taste.

Add garnish of green, pumpkin oil, toasted coconut, or anything else that strikes your fancy.

  1. Hi Genevieve,

    Would you mind if I link to this recipe in a Cauliflower Recipe Roundup I’m doing on my blog ( I would include 1 photo & a link directly to your recipe. It looks so yummy I just have to share!

    This Organic Life

    • Hi,
      I also loved this soup, but rather than steaming the cauliflower I roasted it with the garlic and onions.


  2. Sounds so good on a cold day! Btw, does ginger or tumeric need to be bought organic? I have a hard time finding it that way.! Love all your videos and your family is adorable.!

  3. This was so gross even our backyard chickens wouldn’t eat it.

    • What is the point of being rude…?
      Anyways, this soup was delicious and love that its super healthy too! Definitely sharing this with friends and family. Thank !!

  4. I would love to try this recipe. I do however like brothy soups as opposed to creamy/pureed soups. Any suggestions how I could do that? Just add veggie broth? Also are you using virgin coconut oil or refined coconut oil? Thanks so much.

    • Yes, you could just add broth. It’s pretty light even with the coconut milk. You can use either oil. If you like the coconut flavor, go for it!

  5. Love the recipe, thanks for posting it! I shared it with our fans on FB. Perfect for this natural Mama and Fair Trade, Organic spice and coconut milk wholesaler 🙂

  6. just made this tonight and it was so easy and yummy! i have three boys (3, 21 months and 6 months) so if i can make it anyone can!!
    Even my 6 month told tried a few scoops and loved it! so excited for leftovers tomorrow!

  8. I made this for lunch today!! It is so good!! Thanks for an awesome recipe!

  9. The recipe sounds great! Was wondering… your video states to add the spices to the cauliflower before cooking but your printed recipe above states to add the spices after cooking the cauliflower. Clarification?

  10. Nice job on the video, it looks very professional! And I like that you specified organic vegetables, especially for pregnant/nursing moms. Of course, aside from how it affects our health and that of our little ones, there’s the issue of how the pesticides affect farmworkers who have to apply them and animals/birds on and around the farm, so organic’s always good when you are looking at the big picture.

  11. OK! SO I just made it and…..I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much for this!!!!!

  12. Love this!! Just rec’d some cauliflower in my bi weekly CSA order and had no idea what I was going to do with it! Now I do!!!

  13. yum yum! xxx

  14. Genevieve, where do you buy your coconut oil? What brand? I am trying to find the best source money and quality wise!

    • At the grocery store, Dr. Bronner’s seems to be the cheapest with the highest quality. Online, you can order gallon size tubs from or I prefer the taste of Mercola’s.

    • I like Whole Foods 365 Refined Coconut oil as I cook with it almost exclusively and don’t like everything to taste like coconut 🙂

  15. Looks delicious! Quick question – what’s the dirty dozen??

    • Caroline, the dirty dozen are the top 12 produce items that are The most contaminated by pesticides. The idea is that if you can only afford to go organic on certain things, these should be your priority.

      Sweet Bell Peppers
      Grapes (Imported)

  16. I love your recipes! Thank you for sharing this. What a great thing to be making during this season of Lent.

    • Didn’t even think of that but yes, great for Lent :)> Thanks Katie!

  17. That looks so easy, I’m going to make that this week! Thanks so much, easy/healthy recipes are the best for mamas.

  18. Looks great! Seeing your cordless immersion blender makes me want to upgrade mine.

    Onions are #1 on the Clean Fifteen, but I always make sure I buy organic celery.

    • Really!?!? I always thought onions were nasty. My bad 🙂

      • Yup, onions are on the clean 15! I’ve heard they are actually good to grow next to other plants as a natural pesticide cause bugs don’t like em!

      • In terms of pesticides while growing, they are “clean.” But I’ve heard that they spray anti-fungals or anti-somethings (my brain is forgetting at the moment) on them to prevent sprouting or something. I always buy organic.
