Guess what, guys? It’s Live Eat Learn’s birthday! She turns a whopping 3 years old today (which, if my calculations are correct, is like 11 in internet years). And what better to celebrate a birthday than with…soup. Right?

Honestly, I didn’t remember it was her birthday until a few days ago, at which point it was too late to make a cake. Besides, how am I supposed to work nutritional yeast into a cake? I’ve been known for some unconventional flavor combinations, but that one would take the cake (ha. ha.)

So we’re ditching the cake in lieu of this healthy cauliflower soup! It’s ultra-creamy and rich without dairy, and has the most delicious crispy bits on top that I’m obsessed with.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil divided, 30 mL
  • 1 medium white onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth 700 mL
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast 20 g
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs 15 g
  • Pinch each salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Soup: Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cooking until onion softens (about 5 min). Add broth, nutritional yeast, and thyme. Roughly chop about 3/4 of the cauliflower and add to the pot. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until cauliflower is fork-tender.

  2. Crispy Bits: Thinly slice the remaining 1/4 of the cauliflower. Heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then add cauliflower in a single layer. Cook until both sides are lightly browned, then add the panko and continue cooking until bread crumbs are golden. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Serve: Remove thyme sprigs from soup and puree (either using a handheld immersion blender or a by transferring to a standing blender). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm topped with crispy cauliflower.

Notes

For a low carb option, simply leave out the panko!

    I pinned this to give it a try. I’d leave out the bread crumbs but I’ve never made a cauliflower meal before. I want to like it, so I’m going to give it a try.

      It’s so creamy and rich, I think you’ll have no problem liking it (but I may be biased 😉 )
