Cauliflower, Turmeric & Coriander Seed Soup

"It [soup] breathes reassurance, it offers consolation; after a weary day it promotes sociability...There is nothing like a bowl of hot soup, it's wisp of aromatic steam teasing the nostrils into quivering anticipation."- Louis P. DeGouy, 1949

 

For our second soup, we’ll be making a Cauliflower, Turmeric, & Coriander Seed Soup.

Cauliflower is the palest member of the Brassica family.

The Brassica family is a group of cruciferous vegetables, also known as the cabbage family.

Method

  1. Cut the cauliflower in medium sized florets
