Let your imagination roam to India when it comes to toppers for this mildly spicy soup: toasted unsweetened coconut, coarsely chopped cashews, a dollop of yogurt and warm naan bread for dipping. The recipe comes from La Soupe, a nonprofit cafe in Cincinnati.


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon madras style curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 head cauliflower, finely chopped (6 cups)
  • 1 32 - ounce carton reduced sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • Salt
  • Lightly charred torn naan, plain Greek yogurt, toasted raw chip coconut, and/or chopped roasted cashews


  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat until lightly browned and nutty in aroma. Add onion; cook until soft, translucent and slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add celery; cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute. Add curry powder, cumin, allspice, coriander, smoked paprika and pepper; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add cauliflower, stirring to coat in spice mixture.
  2. Add broth. Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until cauliflower is very tender, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly. Puree half of the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth, then return it to the pot with remaining soup. Stir blended and not-blended soups to combine, season with salt and pepper, and return to a simmer over medium heat. Serve with naan and garnishes, if desired.
