Using fresh vegetables, herbs, and bone broths adds a depth of flavor to this soup. And a little chemistry adds a psychedelic swirl 🙂
This soup might have you switching to making soups from scratch and can help boost your daily intake of vegetables.
These veggie and broth-based soups also have a few other benefits:
- Use leftovers and reduce waste.
- It’s really hard to mess up and you can make a soup with practically anything.
- It’s the best homemade leftovers you can make. When you make soup, you do basically the same amount of work for 1 cup versus 16 cups. So making soup is an easy way to make extra food with little extra effort. Not only that, but soup freezes really well and reheats even better, so I love it for personal homemade freezer meals.
How to make Purple Cauliflower Soup
This soup is incredibly easy to make.
Begin by sauteeing shallots in olive oil and then add the cauliflower. Mix in bone broth and use an emulsion blender to bring it to an even consistency.
Once served, top this soup with fresh ground cracked pepper, spicy radish micro greens, and lemon juice.
Plating the soup for optimal tie-die effect
Did you know that lemon juice turns purple cauliflower from a muted, dull purple into a vibrant fuschia?! me neither… Till this happened!! #tastetherainbow
Lemon juice has a dual purpose. Not only does it add some awesome color that makes you look like a master chef magician, but it also adds a citrus kick as a palate counterpoint to the creamy cauliflower soup.
