Cauliflowers are in season and it’s time for soup again… so this time, I am sharing my most favorite soup – Roasted Cauliflower Soup. The wonderful thing about this soup is that it is creamy without adding any actual cream. The texture is very silky smooth and I add some almond/pista paste to make it more soothing to the palate. In this recipe, I first fry the cauliflower to get that roasted flavor, you may instead grill it too.

    Hi there, I made this soup today, I added 2 small chopped chilies and 1 inch ginger piece, some coriander and pinch of turmeric. It came out just perfect with a slight bite and taste.
