Who would’ve thought – another savoury recipe! Judging by the recipe repertoire on this blog, you must think I live on nothing but gluten free cupcakes and raw vegan desserts. I assure you, that’s not the case – oftentimes I actually prefer a savoury dish over a sweet delicacy.

But what I love most of all is my mum’s cooking. It’s often said that any dish prepared by someone else tastes infinitely better than if you had prepared it yourself; and surely nothing tastes better than your mum’s cooking. Of course, I may be somewhat biased.

Case in point: this super easy dairy free cream of cauliflower soup. Comfort food at it’s best. It’s creamy and satisfying, and it gives you that cozy feeling of… being home. At the same time, if you eat it at room temperature or slightly chilled, it’s refreshing and light – but either way, it’s simply delicious.

There’s nothing complicated about it – 7 ingredients, 25 minutes and that’s it. And two of those ingredients are salt and pepper. You might think such a soup is bland and needs some extra fancy ingredient, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Sometimes, the simple things are the best… the simplicity of clean flavours, of a bowl of soup, of a mother’s embrace.


The soup is also dairy free, which often isn’t the case with such cream soups. But there honestly isn’t any need for gallons of cream or butter – the potato, parsnip and cauliflower take care of the creaminess all on their own.

This cream of cauliflower soup is taken to the next level by the inclusion of croutons (pieces of bread, quickly fried or toasted in a pan), chopped chives and borage flowers. All of these are optional, but they add colour, texture and even more flavour to this delightful dish.

With how easy it is to prepare, this cream of cauliflower soup would make the perfect quick lunch or dinner. (You can also prepare it in advance and heat it up!) It’s full of vitamins and minerals, perhaps the most notable of these is the mineral potassium, which is crucial for the healthy activity of the heart and other muscles. It is often washed down the drain with the cooking water of potatoes and other vegetables – but it’s all retained in this incredibly yummy soup.

If you’re in a rush, in need of a quick pick-me-up lunch, or crave some simple comfort food, this cream of cauliflower soup is the way to go. After all, there’s nothing better than a mum’s cooking and this dish, in a way, comes directly from my mum’s kitchen… into yours.
