Mom's Curry Carrot Cauliflower Soup

This is one of my favorite soups and a Mama Chan-Norris specialty! Whenever I make the trip back to NY to visit family in the winter, this soup is waiting for me as my Welcome Home post-flight meal. It's delicious, comforting, and surely to warm you up in the cold winter months.

Mom's Curry Cauliflower Soup


  • 2-3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 small onions (chopped)
  • 2 inch piece of fresh ginger (peeled and chopped)
  • 5 cloves garlic (peeled and chopped)
  • 3 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 6-8 medium carrots or 3-4 large carrots (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 head cauliflower (chopped)
  • 6 cups water
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • Cilantro (chopped)


  1. Heat oil in pot over medium heat.
  2. Add onions and dash of sea salt. Cook until onions are soft.
  3. Add ginger, garlic and spices. Sauté for about 1 minute.
  4. Add carrots, cauliflower and water.
  5. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
  6. Pureé using a hand blender until smooth. If you don't have a hand blender, pour mixture into a regular blender in batches, pureé and then return mixture to the pot.
  7. Serve immediately and top with cilantro for garnish.

If you're a soup fan, a hand blender will make your time in the kitchen much easier and more enjoyable! Below is the one I's awesome:
