This super healthy, immune-boosting Ginger and Turmeric Cauliflower Soup is packed with nutrients and flavor! It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and paleo. And so delicious!



  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 head orange cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 3 carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
  • 1 (14.5) ounce can lite coconut milk
  • More salt and ground pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower florets and chopped carrots and sauté until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in the onion and garlic and sauté another 3 minutes. Stir in the turmeric powder, ginger, salt and pepper.
  2. Add the vegetable (or chicken) broth and coconut milk to the pot, stirring well. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and lower to a simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until the vegetables are soft.
  3. Using either an immersion blender or high-powered blender, blend until smooth and creamy. You can leave some chunks in for texture. Adjust seasonings.
  4. Add some coarse ground pepper on top for serving.


  • If you can’t find yellow cauliflower in your grocery store, it’s fine to use the white variety.
  • To keep this soup vegan, use vegetable broth. Otherwise, chicken broth works just as well in this recipe.
  • I used lite coconut milk to keep the calories down, but full-fat coconut milk works as well.
  • This soup freezes well for later! You can freeze this for up to 3 months.
