Soup Thursday - Curried Cauliflower Soup

I am currently in the grips of a cruel and totally disgusting stomach bug so this post will be brief.

Last week I saw a post from Cyndi of Cookin' With Cyndi that she was designating Thursdays as a day to cook a soup or stew for dinner and invited us all to join in. I think this is an excellent idea. I love soup but we don't eat it a lot - it always seems to be a last resort meal in our house. Thankfully I made this soup before I got sick so I can still take part.

So here's my contribution to Cyndi's first week of Thursday Soup or Stew.

Curried Cauliflower Soup

1 tb olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 head cauliflower, cored and cut into florets (about 4 cups)
1 small red potato, chopped
5 cups vegetable stock

Heat the oil and saute the onion until soft and starting to color. Add the spices and give a quick stir. Add the cauliflower, potato and stock. Stir well, bring to a simmer, cover and cook until veggies are tender, 15 minutes or so. Remove from heat. Using a blender, food processor or stick blender, puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

I garnished Scott's bowl with mozzarella cheese and green onions and my bowl with smoked paprika and green onions. Both were equally yummy.

Thanks Cyndi, I hope this becomes a weekly affair! Think of all the fun we could all have.

Other than the letter "L" tomorrow I will be taking a break until I am feeling better and can look and think about food without wanting to die. Cheers.

Sara! I am soooo sorry you have that nasty bug! I know of which you speak when even thinking about food just makes you want to die... Feel better soon!

I do hope you can ditch the bug soon. It's no fun for a foodie to be turned off by food! Fell better soon.
Soup sounds good to me.
Looking forward to when you're hungry again so we can see the cooking again.
