Cauliflower And Sweet Potato Curry Soup

From Rose Reisman's "Secrets for Permanent Weight Loss"

This is a deliciously smooth and creamy soup with a hint of curry. The nutritional impact is high because of the antioxidants from the cauliflower, and the beta carotene and low-gylcemic index from the sweet potatoes.

Cook Time:30 mins Servings:6

  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp medium curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 3 1/2 cups diced sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp honey


  • 3 Tbsp lower-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1. In a large nonstick saucepan sprayed with vegetable spray, heat the oil. Sauté the garlic and onion until softened, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the curry powder, cinnamon, salt, pepper, cauliflower, stock, sweet potatoes and honey and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Transfer to a food processor and purée until creamy and smooth. Return to the saucepan and thin with more stock if desired.
3. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and cilantro.
