Easy and delicious, low-carb, no-dairy, cauliflower soup. Hit that thing with some hot sauce, if you like.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced, or more to taste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, leaves removed and chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • ¼ avocado

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place cauliflower florets into a bowl of lightly salted water and soak for 20 minutes.
  2. 2 Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  3. 3 Broil in the preheated oven until brown on top, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. 4 Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in the hot oil until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add broth, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Let simmer until cauliflower is ready.
  5. 5 Stir cauliflower into the broth with cashews and tahini. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Add avocado and blend using an immersion blender. Serve.

  1. Very tasty and just what I was looking for in a low carb soup. I substituted almonds for cashews since I was out. I also used the air fryer to brown the cauliflower for 20 minutes.
  2. This was wonderful. I used almond butter instead of tahini... had that in cupboard. Never have used nuts as a thickener before... I really like this. I didnt need to ad any salt but I did add rainbow pepper. Next time I will try it with hot sauce
