Curried Cauliflower & Apple Soup

18 Oct

I’ve been in a real soup mood lately–I’m almost tempted to make nothing but these days! My most recent “liquid lunch” was Daniel Boulud’s tasty Curried Cauliflower & Apple Soup with Cilantro Cream. See page 69 of the Oprah Magazine Cookbook or click here for the recipe.

This dish combines the delicate fall-friendly flavours of cauliflower and apple, and is spiced with a pleasant, civilized amount of curry. Though it doesn’t quite have the “wow, this is amazing” quality of the Spiced Butternut Squash and Apple soup I made recently, it’s still very good.

I didn’t make any changes to this other than forgoing the whipped cilantro cream topping. I’m sure it would have made a nice touch but it by no means seemed necessary. One thing not to forgo, however, is the curried diced apple topping. Delicious.

It’s worth nothing that the full recipe would make enough to feed a very large family (10-12 servings) and so I cut it in half. It halved easily and still left us with plenty of leftovers. Luckily, you know how soups & casseroles almost inevitably taste better the next day.

All in all, I found this to be a good seasonal soup recipe. Perfect for anyone (like us!) who happened to check out the UBC Apple Festival this weekend.
