Roasted cauliflower and kale soup with kale chips and pine nuts topping. Rich, creamy (no cream) and delicious, this soup is full of wonderful flavors.
You can definitely tell it is fall around here. Even though the temperatures were in the 70s this weekend, I’m getting excited about trees turning yellow.
It is definitely time for some comfort food and soups are perfect for this time of the year.
A while back I used to make soup almost every day. And I need to get back to this routine. I’m all about quick and easy soups that are usually make in less than 1 hour.
You have a huge cauliflower fan here – that’s me! I also had some readers requesting a kale recipe and I’m excited to share this soup recipe with you today.
Why roast the cauliflower?
You can definitely steam or boil it and this will save you some time, but the taste of the soup will be a little different.
Why do I prefer roasted cauliflower in most of my soups?
Roasting the cauliflower intensifies its flavor and gives it a slightly nutty taste. It is all about flavor. You can also use roasted cauliflower as a side dish or in rice and quinoa bowls. It is not mushy like boiled (or steamed) cauliflower and has a great texture and even a little crunch.
Kale and cauliflower is a nice combination.
In this recipe half of the kale is roasted to make crunchy kale chips and the other half is boiled and then pureed in the soup.
Kale is a superfood, which I use for soups, salads and smoothies. It is nutrient dense food, rich in vitamins, minerals, it contains fiber and it is low in calories.
You can definitely serve the soup without even pureeing it, but I just love cream soups and that’s how I make it.
The recipe is for a small batch of 4 servings, because we (my husband mostly!) usually don’t like left over soup.
