Creamy Coconut Curry Sweet Potato-Cauliflower Soup

Lately, I’ve had a minor obsession with cauliflower and sweet potatoes.

Everywhere I look, I see wonderful dishes made with these healthy, hardy staples.

Sweet potatoes are chock full of nutrients including vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese,

fiber, antioxidants, complex carbohydrates and they are low in calories.

Cauliflower is a member of the cruciferous family of vegetables.

One serving of cauliflower contains 77 % of the recommended daily value of vitamin C.

It’s also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium,

phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese.

I have made sweet potato soup, mashed sweet potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes,

sweet potato chowder, sweet potato patties.

I have roasted, steamed, boiled and riced cauliflower, but I have never combined

sweet potatoes with cauliflower.

That’s why I decided to experiment with this combination.

After a few less-than-delicious tries, I finally found a combination of ingredients that

satisfied my taste buds:  Creamy Coconut Curry Sweet Potato-Cauliflower Soup.

Preheat oven to 425°.

Toss the cauliflower with 1 tablespoons of the oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Arrange in an even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Toss the sweet potato, carrots and celery with 1 tablespoon oil and

1/2 teaspoon sea salt.

Arrange in an even layer on another parchment-lined baking sheet.

Roast the vegetables in the oven for 30 minutes, or until they are tender and caramelized.

While the veggies are roasting, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a heavy stockpot.

Saute the onion and mushrooms over medium-high heat until soft, 5 minutes.

Stir in the garlic and curry paste.

Cook 2 minutes.

Pour in the coconut milk and 2 cups water and scrape up any brown bits that may have

formed on the bottom of the pan.

Bring it all to a boil.

Next, stir in the mushrooms, roasted cauliflower, sweet potato, carrots, celery, maple syrup

and lime juice.

Bring back to a simmer then remove from the heat.

Puree 2/3 of the mixture with maple syrup and lime juice in your blender until smooth.

Add additional liquid if needed to create the consistency you want.

Pour the pureed mixture back into your pot.

Lightly chop the remaining 1/3 of the vegetables into small chunks.

Stir them into the pureed mixture.

Simmer the soup for a few minutes until it is heated through.
