Cauliflower Soup with Cumin and Lime

Posted by Solitary Dancer on January 24, 2008

Cauliflower Soup with Cumin and Lime
BY: Ariella

I found this recipe and thought it might be pretty good. I like cauliflower and am always amazed at how many different ways it can be prepared. This is another new way that I am adding to my “try soon” list.


1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 large onion, chopped fine
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 1/2 cups chopped cauliflower (a smallish head, a little larger than a softball)
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup water
1/4 cup half-and-half (I would use a mix of heavy cream and water to further reduce the carbs)
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
2 limes, juice of


   1. In a heavy saucepan cook the onion in one tablespoon of the butter over moderate heat, stirring, until it is softened. Add the cauliflower, the broth and the water and simmer the mixture, covered, for 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender.

   2. In a blender or food processor purée the mixture in batches, return it to pan, and stir in the half-and-half, the lime juice, vinegar, remaining butter and salt and pepper to taste. Heat the soup over low heat, stirring, until it is hot, but do not let it boil, ladle it into bowls, and sprinkle it with the cumin powder to taste.
