I love saffron so when I came across this recipe for cauliflower soup with saffron I decided to veganize it. Super easy and now it is one of my favorite soups to make!
makes 4 to 6 servings
1/2 big head of cauliflower
2 cups vegetable stock
1 cup water
Big pinch saffron threads, crumbled
1/2 cup oat milk
S and P
Chives, for garnish
Combine the vegetable stock and water. Bring to a simmer and remove from the heat. Crumble the saffron between your fingers and add to the stock/water. Steep while preparing the onions and cauliflower.
Dice the onion and, in a soup pot, sauté in olive oil until soft. Break up the cauliflower and add to the onions. Toss to coat with oil and onions. Pour saffron broth into the pot and simmer, covered, until cauliflower is soft.
Using an immersion blender or Vitamix, puree until smooth. Add the oat milk and stir. Season with salt, taste and adjust. Garnish with chives. Enjoy!
