Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Turmeric

Turmeric, best known for it’s use in curries, seems to be popping up everywhere, in a variety of recipes – everything from hummus to smoothies to dry rubs.

This bright yellow spice is both a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and is commonly used to add rich spice and color to dishes.

The Test Kitchen wanted to include turmeric in a soup and decided that the spice would complement roasted cauliflower beautifully.

For Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Turmeric, drizzle cauliflower florets, one shallot and a clove of garlic with olive oil and bake for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees, until the cauliflower is fork tender. Add vegetable broth, roasted cauliflower, garlic, shallot, sugar, salt, turmeric, cumin and pepper to the Hamilton Beach Professional Blender jar. Cover and PUREE for 1 minute. Then pour half and half into the filler cap and PULSE until the soup is well blended.

We garnished this rich and creamy soup with roasted chickpeas and fresh cilantro for an added crunch and pop of color, but topping it with a little extra roasted cauliflower or even some sriracha for additional spice would be delicious.

Serve this creamy soup with a buttery baguette for dipping and say hello to one of your new fall staples.
