  • 1 head of cauliflower (2 1/4 pounds), bottom trimmed and leaves removed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small Pink Lady apple—peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk
  • Chopped roasted cashews, for garnish

How to make this recipe

  1. Chop the cauliflower into large pieces, including the stem. In a large pot, combine all of the ingredients except the salt, almond milk and garnish. Add enough water to cover the vegetables, season with salt and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat until the cauliflower is very tender, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly.

  2. Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a clean pot and stir in the almond milk. Rewarm over moderate heat, adding more water or almond milk for a thinner consistency, if desired. Season the soup with salt, garnish with chopped cashews and serve.

Make Ahead

The soup can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
