Coconut, Cauliflower and Carrot Soup Recipe
Active time: 25 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 375°. In a large pot, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Add onion and ginger. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, stirring a few times, until onion is soft, about 8 minutes. Add turmeric and cumin and stir 30 seconds. Add vegetable stock or water, carrots and cauliflower and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
Stir in coconut milk and boil, uncovered, over medium heat until liquid has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, spread coconut flakes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with a pinch of salt and set aside. In a blender, puree soup in batches. Divide among 4 bowls, top with reserved toasted coconut, and serve immediately.
