How to make it?
2 L of Chicken Broth ( or vegan if you want )
2 medium onions – chopped
1 kg of peeled potatoes – cut on smaller pieces
2 heads of Cauliflower
2 table spoons of turmeric powder
1 table spoon of fennel seed powder
1 table spoon of coconut oil
fresh dill for serving (optional)
Preheat the Broth if you need and throw in the cut cauliflower ( it is enough on half), and potatoes ( do not need to be too small pieces). Cover the Pot with lid and cook on medium heat until the vegetables are tender.
In the meantime, preheat the pan with coconut oil and fry the chopped onions until medium brown. Throw them into the soup pot and cook for another 2-3 minutes. When the cauliflower is tender and potatoes too, blend all until smooth. Add Turmeric and Fennel Powders and mix well, cooking under low heat for another 5-7 minutes. Try the soup if it is salty enough. Add more mined salt at your own preference. I always add little by little, a tablespoon, then I cook for another 2-3 minutes, I try it again and then decide if I need to add more. Mined Salts like Himalayan Salt like to be less salty as they have high mineral content.
How to cook the broth ?
Prepare a pot with 2.5 L of water and two chicken tights. Cook it with no salt for 30 min on low heat. Peel 5 carrots, 3 parsley roots, 4 celery sticks, 2 onions, 5 bay leaves, 4 allspice grains and cook on very low heat for at least 60 minutes. Season with Salt (2-3 table spoons) and Pepper (few pinches) in the end and cook for another 15 min. Do not boil. Skip chicken for vegan broth option.
