Golden Vegan Cauliflower 'Bisque'

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"Hearty and satisfying without being overly rich or heavy, this flavorful, easy, healthy 'bisque' gets rave reviews and is always gone by meal's end! It travels well, as the soup can be eaten hot, cold, or in-between. It always vanishes during pot-luck dinners, even when cauliflower is an unfavorite food!"

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a 4-quart pot with a tight-fitting lid over medium-low heat. Cook and stir vegetables in the hot oil until nearly tender, 7 to 10 minutes; add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  2. Stir cauliflower and carrot into the vegetable mixture; season with allspice and seasoned salt. Pour vegetable broth over the vegetable mixture. Place lid on the pot and cook vegetables until soft, 30 to 45 minutes.
  3. Ladle about half the vegetables into the bowl of a blender with enough liquid to cover. Hold lid in place with a towel and pulse blender a few times to get mixture moving before leaving blender on to puree vegetables entirely.
  4. Mash remaining vegetables in the pot with a fork or potato masher until no large chunks remain. Pour pureed vegetable mixture into the pot with the coconut milk; stir. Season soup with salt and pepper.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For non-vegetarians: This can be made with chicken broth, milk, or cream with chopped, cooked white potato, sweet potato, or rice for richer results.
  • Vegetarian options: Top with grated cheese when serving hot. Top with sour cream when serving cold.
  • It can be made without coconut milk for even less calories, and it will still be vegan, lactose-, gluten-, and starch-free, while remaining almost nearly as good!

This is a delicious soup! I will make a couple of changes next time: one can of coconut milk and half a can of water (rather than 2 cans of coconut milk), I will use fresh veggies and only yell...

Loved this.. I used fresh peppers, onion, celery and parsley and added a little skim milk instead of coconut milk . Will make again

This is a nice, creamy vegan soup that is both warming and filling. I'd make it again, even though cauliflower isn't my favorite.

Made as directed. Delicious! It was a little more soup-y (less creamy) than I expected, so I might decrease the coconut milk next time, but nonetheless, the whole family loved it as made!

Been trying to do the daniel fast and this recipe fit the bill! Vegan and healthy! It was a it bland and if i could have put a bit of cheddar cheese on to it would've been awesome, but it is hea...
