  • 3-4 cups chicken or vegetable stock (depending how thick you like your soup)
  • 1 400ml tin coconut milk
  • Handful of roasted coconut chips

  2. Cut cauliflower in large florets

  4. Peel garlic and leave whole
  5. Place cauliflower, garlic and onion onto a baking tray and mix with olive oil, ras el hanout and tumeric
  6. Spread vegetables into a single layer and bake for 30-40 minutes until soft
  7. Pour roasted veg into a large pot and add stock
  8. Bring to boil for 5 minutes then add coconut milk and simmer for 10 minutes
  9. Turn heat off and use a stick blender to puree the soup until smooth (if you use a normal blender, see notes below)
  10. Top with sprinkle of coconut chips and serve


If you use a normal blender with a lid, WAIT for soup to cool before before starting the blender else… kaboom).

Turmeric is optional depending on the blend of ras el hanout you are using. Some have more turmeric than others and if you do not have turmeric at home, don’t worry about it.

You can also use half a cauliflower and 1 large zucchini
