SWEET POTATO AND CAULIFLOWER SOUP
- 3 carrots, peeled and halved
- 1 large sweet potato, chopped into large pieces
- 1 large head cauliflower, cut into large chunks
- 6 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon cream
- 15 ml lemon juice
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add carrots and sweet potato. Reduce heat to low and let simmer until semi-tender, about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower, celery, garlic, and turmeric; stir well. Simmer, stirring every few minutes, until cauliflower is fork-tender but not mushy, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, season with salt, and stir until golden, 5 to 7 minutes.
Stir sautéed onion, coconut cream, and dill into the soup. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and pour mixture into a large bowl. Let cool slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.
Stir in lemon juice.
Taste and adjust lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste.
Use an immersion blender to blend until smooth. Enjoy hot or refrigerate and serve.
