Curried Cauliflower Soup

All Indian Flavors Instant Pot Soups & Stews


Using simple ingredients, this is a go-to for me, and is definitely one of my favorite light meals.  

I love soups.  Not only are they jam-packed with veggies but they are also warm, nourishing, and delicious.  Most think about soups when it’s cold outside but living in Singapore it doesn’t really get cold. Right now though, it’s the rainy season and that slightly cooler breeze plus the constant rain makes me crave all types of soup! I also love soup as a light weekend meal or when I’m down with a cold.

This soup has a good amount of ginger so it’s wonderful for digestion. Ginger is also great at warming the body, so perfect for when recovering from a cold or flu.

I whipped this up when clearing out my fridge, so I used what was on hand. I was honestly surprised at how tasty it turned out.

In the recipe, I added 1 green chili and a pretty hefty amount of ginger. In our house, we like the heat! Please feel free to omit the green chili and reduce the ginger if spicy food isn’t your thing!

I whipped mine up in the instant-pot which made getting a nice smooth velvety texture a breeze with the hand blending. If you are making this on the stove-top, please make sure it cooks long enough. You don’t want your soup to be gritty!

I would love to hear your thoughts if you make this soup!

    This recipe is AMAZING and so easy! We love curry and this was such a healthy way to use up some veggies and feel better after eating it. I will absolutely make this on a regular basis moving forward. My in-laws and husband loved it, and kept saying, “This is SO good!” Thanks for the recipe!
