Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup

Yes, it’s another orange soup. There may be more this month, so fair warning! But this one is a pretty awesome recipe, if I do say so myself.

This soup has a pleasant depth and is slightly sweet from the addition of those pretty orange potatoes and roasted cauliflower. The sweetness is delicately enhanced with a light sprinkle of garam masala. And, the chunky veggies and thick and creamy broth make it good choice for lunch or a light dinner.

 Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup

yield: 6 to 8 servings

  • 1 large head cauliflower (the one I used was at least 7″ in diameter
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • Few dashes garam masala (optional)
  • 3 medium to large sized peeled sweet potatoes, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 7 cups filtered water

First, preheat your oven to 400 °F and cut up your cauliflower into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle cauliflower lightly with garam masala. Place cauliflower onto ungreased cookie sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Place in oven and let roast until golden brown on the tops and tender, but not mushy, about 20-30 minutes. There’s no need to flip ‘em. Just remove from oven and let cool while you cook the rest of the soup.

In large stockpot, bring sweet potato, onion, garlic and water to a boil. Salt (abt 3/4 tsp) and stir. Reduce heat and allow to remain at a constant simmer until sweet potatoes are tender. Add in cooked cauliflower and divide soup into 2 parts.

Let soup cool and then blend one part soup in blender until very smooth. Combine with second part soup and stir. Salt to taste and warm up over stovetop if needed.

    I made this a little different tonight. Instead of water I used veggie broth and added a shallot. No garam masala ( didn’t have any). Thanks for sharing :) This was really good!

  3. Blah says:

    Gonna make this tonight. I’m thinking some cayenne pepper, chopped cerano peppers and half vegetable stock half water. All organic.

  4. […] forget (I’m sure some if you can relate!) I found a soup I had pinned a while ago – Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup! This soup may sound boring or yucky, but you have to try it before you knock it. I have actually […]

    Absolutely delicious! Certainly add vegetable stock though…. my husband is going to love it.

  7. Becky says:

    I’m wondering if this can be frozen and rewarded and still be as good as fresh?? I doubled recipe because I was hoping to freeze it. Thanks!!

  8. ellen says:

    made this tonight. followed directions exactly, until I read comments and threw in a veg. bouillon cube. With just a splash of sour cream and crackers, I thought it was really good – especially for the nutrients in it.

  9. Michelle says:

    Superb soup. I never really appreciated the flavor of vegetables until I became a vegetarian. This recipe showcases how unique and amazing the flavor of well seasoned veggies is. I chose to instead toss the cauliflower in some basil and a sprinkle of thyme. After coating the cauliflower lightly with olive oil, I grilled it instead of sticking it in the oven. Can I say, the most amazing flavor ever. The soup turned out delicious. Thank you for the recipe!

  10. Lucy Crook says:

    Thanks for the recipe! I think I’ll try roasting the sweet potatoes next time to give it a bit more complexity. Super yummy soup!

  11. Dan says:

    I just made this and it was super-delicious. Nice recipe, thanks for sharing!

  12. ChrisBasham says:

    I only had one sweet potato, so I supplemented with some carrots, thinking this probably creates a lighter soup. Delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!

    • SharonT says:

      Try making it using your own veggie broth, store is very high in sodium and bland ….
      Great soup! Thank you….

      • Karen says:

        The recipe doesn’t call for veggie stock so why use it? It’s made with veggies and has excellent flavour – its the reason why some people had poor results. It’s a delicious subtle taste. I have made this often, but usually add carrots as well as sweet potato, a stick of celery and some red pepper flakes. It’s awesome comfort food.

  13. Emma says:

    This soup was a little bland at first, but I added more salt, pepper, some ground red pepper and some curry powder and now I adore it! I like the chunky side, too, even though I usually love pureed soups – better for bread dipping :)

  14. Kathleen says:

    I pinned this recipe awhile back and finally made it tonight and found it to be delicious! I just tweaked it a bit. I sauteed the onions and garlic in a little olive oil and then added 1 tsp of garam masala to toast with the aromatics (instead of sprinkling it on the cauliflower), then I added 3 cups of water, a carton of veggie stock and the sweet potatoes. I seasoned it with plenty of salt and pepper, and we pureed half as directed although we decided that we’d like the whole soup pureed. I sprinkled it with chopped chives before serving. My husband loved it!

  15. Rosy Bailey says:

    Made this tonight after finding the recipe on Pinterest. All fresh ingredients and using vegetable stock instead of water I still found it really bland. I kept adding things to try and give it some flavour, adding some chilli flakes and grated nutmeg. This made it palatable but as I have a large pot of it I think I might be adding some curry paste to try and increase the flavour. So sorry to give a negative comment after all the positive ones.

  16. Melissa MacDonald says:

    I made this tonight. Super good. thank you so much!

  17. Chana says:

    Delicious!!!! I rarely leave comments but this one deserves it! Yuuuum! I didn’t have the spice mixture at home. I googled the ingredients and put in whatever it called for that I had in my house. I blended up all the ingredients, thought my family would enjoy it better that way– they did!!! And I love that’s is so healthy! All natural ingredients!! Thanks for posting this!

  18. Tjcooker says:

    Yum..I just made your soup…. All made from fresh ingredients, I just added one thing… Vegetable stock (powder) an all natural one …nothing sinister in it….. Thanks for the recipe.. :-)

  19. LMD says:

    Hmmm, this was a good starter recipe but I think it needs something to ramp up the flavor. I didn’t have garam masala, so I didn’t use it. I wouldn’t expect an optional ingredient to leave the recipe so lacking. I baked my sweet potatoes rather than boil them, because I think baking lends more flavor than boiling. I was out of stock so I used water as the recipe called for, but next time I would definitely add veggie stock. I added some chipotle chili powder, but it was still missing something so I added some sherry which improved the flavor. Today when I re-heated the leftovers I added some half and half and a little butter (I am not vegan) and it was yummy. Like I said, a good starter recipe, so thank you for sharing! Next time I might try it with cumin and a little cinnamon for a morrrocan flavor. Curry powder would also be delicious.

  20. Meganlee says:

    This may sound like a really DUMB question, but I just want to make sure. The water is never drained and discarded right? I wouldn’t think so, but I’m notorious for screwing a new recipe up, and like I said I just wanted to make sure. Thanks!

  21. Kadee says:

    I just made this tonight… Sooooo yummy. I substituted vegetable stock for half the water and blended all of the soup so my hubby wouldn’t know cauliflower was in it. It’s kind of amazing.

  22. Lori D says:

    I just made this tonight from all fresh ingredients. I even made my own version of garam masala (looked up the ingredients). I eat in the Paleo style so I try to make sure everything I eat is never processed through a manufacturing plant.

    But I digress….. this soup is fabulous! I love it, my family loves it, and I will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  23. jae says:

    WOW! This soup us A-MAZING! I just finished making it for the first time &I love it. I used what I had in the kitchen. I used a large can of sweet potatoes, 5cups of water, 1 tbls each of Tastefully Simples Onion Onion and Garlic Garlic and a few dashes of sea salt. I had planned on using the California blend frozen broccoli and califlower mix but realized at the last minute that I was out so the soup is without veggies but still very good. I pulsed in blender for about 1 min and the consistency was perfect. I coupled it with a grilled cheese sandwich and I am now thoroughly satisfied and watching the snow fall here in PA. THANK YOU SOOOO much for the recipe. I look forward to more.

    • Megan says:

      I loved this the best the 2nd or 3rd day! I added a little cayenne pepper too! Delish! Thank you!

  24. Mara says:

    Would you be able to freeze this soup?

    • allyson says:

      Hi Mara,

      I would think so yes. The cauliflower will probably change consistency a bit.. but should work well. :)

  25. Susan says:

    Really, really good! Took into consideration some other comments and added kale, used an immersion blender to blend it all for a chowder like consistency. Added Trader Joe’s super sweet corn after blending and it was superb!!!

  26. Cecile says:

    Hi there! I loved your recipe, it is very nice. I just replaced the cauliflower its Roman version and kept less water. Otherwise, it is a great idea!! I reblogged it! Thanks for your site. Cecile

  27. Sandy says:

    I just made this. I blended the whole pot after it simmered and then added the roasted cauliflower to the creamy mixture. That was perfect! I added more salt, some honey, a pinch of cayenne, and it was Spike seasoning (no salt) that was the final touch that made the flavor really come out!

  28. Jen B says:

    I found this recipe via Pinterest, and made it for dinner tonight. Delicious! I followed the recipe with just a small adjustment. I used a carton of low sodium chicken broth (about 4 cups) and 3 cups of water (instead of the suggested 7 cups of water) and I pureed the whole soup so it was silky smooth and served with a dollap of sour cream. My super picky daughter ate 2 whole bowls!!! Thank you so much for sharing this super easy and delicious recipe ♡

  29. Tracey says:

    Loved this soup. After cooking the sweet potato, onion, and garlic (in veg. broth) I pureed all of it, then added the roasted cauliflower and simmered for ten minutes. The texture was perfect. I too added more masala, and coriander.

  30. Nikola says:

    Just made it…but I also added half a can of coconut milk in it and it is delicious! Super healthy too…Thanx!

  32. Judy Gray says:

    I was really looking forward to making this soup. Followed the instructions per the recipe and I’m very disappointed. The garlic and onion, in my opinion, did nothing for this soup. Unpinned the recipe.

  33. Lystessa says:

    I’ve made this twice now. This last time I added an apple, and I happened to be roasting an eggplant at the same time. The smell in the kitchen was so good that I tried putting some pureed eggplant (with lemon juice and a bit of garlic powder) into the soup. It was quite awesome!

  34. Pam says:

    made with butternut squash instead of sweet potato. Used Garam Masala (not spicy) & Tandoori. This is a great soup!

  35. I made this last week. I doubled the recipe and gave some to my mom. I really liked having cauliflower chunks in the soup. It gave it some texture. I love that it is healthy and easy to make. Great recipe!

  36. Toz says:

    I’m not even vegan and I love this recipe! I added some green onion and crushed red pepper to it.

    Tasty tasty.

  37. Sharan says:

    I would add some coconut milk!!!

  38. Maria says:

    Instead of boiling the sweet potatoes, I roasted those too at 400F for 1 hour. I also sautéed the onion and garlic before adding chicken stock, the sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and garam masala & salt. I let it boil before pureeing half of the soup, then garnished with chives before serving. It came out amazing.

  39. jen says:

    This was awesome both times, one of my new fav recipies. Shared with a friend, they agree and have made several times. And super easy, though I cheated and used immersion blender ;). Ty

  40. Cher says:

    Just made this soup and it is DEE-LISH! Thank you for posting!! And thank you to all the commenters as I took some of the suggestions and was very happy with the result! I couldn’t find the garam masala – so I used Emeril’s Essense instead. I used chicken stock instead of water and I added an apple and carrots! The texture is perfect (I did the half blend/half chunky) and the taste is sweet and spicy! Will definitely make this again!

  41. Lauren says:

    I made this tonight and altered the recipe a bit!

    I threw in 2 bouillon cube (/veggie broth) and added several dashes of cayenne, cumin, and additional garam masala into the soup mix. Top with chopped scallions. Yum! Next time I’ll try throwing in some carrots with the sweet potatoes!

  42. melissa says:

    made last night — using a sweet potato not a yam so the color wasn’t as orange; delicious! any chance of getting the nutritional information for this recipe.

  43. Lisa says:

    Hi! Love reading the reviews about this soup! It looks delish! I was wondering if anyone has tried using White Sweet Potatoes instead of the regular sweet potatoes and if it was just as good. I’m not a vegetarian, however, I am beginning to incorporate alot more fruits and veggies into my diet and trying to get away from meats and carbs.

    Also where does one find Garam Masala? I’ve such a spice whore (lol)but have never heard of this spice.. :)

    Thanks!

    • Lauren says:

      I’m pretty sure you can find garam masala in most grocery stores! It’s used in lots of indian dishes.. I use it all the time in my soups!

  44. [...] This is a modified version. The original can be found here. [...]

  45. Lindsey says:

    Wow, wow, wow! This was such an excellent soup. My non-vegan extended family raved over this one. Thanks!

  46. Mary Ann says:

    I’ve made this a couple times now and added the spoonful of peanut butter suggestion both times. I think it’s delicious. I also never bothered with blending anything. After I combined and let it all soften up, I just use a potato masher to mash up everything in the pot to make it thick and chunky. Thanks!! ;-)

  47. Lisa G says:

    I made this and it was very yummy. I did not have the garam masala so that didn’t go in. I also roasted the garlic with the cauliflower instead of putting it in with the sweet potatoes. I added some left over chicken. Made a nice dinner with a salad. I will try it with the garam masala when I get some. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Linda says:

      Instead of buying garam masala you can just use a mix of cumin and coriander, with a little cinnamon & ground cloves…that’s the same thing.

  48. deb says:

    This was yummy. I modified it by using 3 cups chicken stock (thats all i had left), 3 cups water and 1 cup Half&Half. Loved it. Will definately make again.

  49. mac says:

    If you want it thicker, just mash up more of the cooked potato pieces once you add the puree back into it.

  50. Kate says:

    Sounds delicious. Do you know if it freezes well?

  51. Alicia says:

    Not a vegetarian, but I love soup. Made this the other day (I halved it – it turned out fine). I doubled the spices. Loved it. My hubby and kids liked the flavor but not the texture, but oh well – more for me :)

    I would recommend another optional ingredient – nut butter – you can either add it to the soup or to a bowl you are serving into. Soooooo good. I’ve tried peanut butter and almond butter – both are good. You could also sprinkle nuts on top just before serving. Nut butters pair so well with sweet potato :)

  52. Alana says:

    WOW. I pinned this for a Thanksgiving appetizer and made it last night. I had to improvise a bit, with the onions and garlic (I used powdered and minced, accordingly). I LOVED it. Seriously good. The soup was thick and a had plenty of little cauliflower bits in it. I know this blog is dedicated to vegan, but I added a bit of heavy cream to the soup once I had pureed it all. It made it so smooth and velvety. SO good! I’m going to link you on my blog.

  53. Good Guys says:

    Making this for dinner tonight. Thanks!

  54. Alice says:

    I added an apple and crushed pepper for a little heat. Delicious.

  55. Betsy says:

    A friend brought this soup to my house for dinner last night. It was so delicious I had to find the recipe right away. Love it!

  56. Jan says:

    Just about finished making this right now. My son had his wisdom teeth out last Thursday so needs a lot of soup! He likes sweet potatoes so I hope this is a hit. Having read some of the very latest comments, I am going to purée 3/4 of the mixture I think and just keep 1/4 for the chunkiness. I also added some extra masala to the soup during cooking. I think the cauliflower roasted like that with masala was just delicious – I battled not to eat all that up first! That’s how I will always serve cauliflower from now on I think!

  57. Sheila G says:

    This soup is absolutely delish! I saved a few smaller pieces of roasted cauliflower for the topping and added the rest to pot. Used immersion blender to puree all in pot. Thick and yummy! Thanks for easy, delicious recipe.

  58. This is simmering on my stove right now and my house smelled so good!! I think when it comes time to puree, I’m going to blend up most of the potatoes, onion mixture and half the cauliflower. I can’t wait to dive into this. I have a pan of great cornbread that I found on The Chocolate Dipped Diet blog to go with it!

  59. Stuart says:

    When you turn the heat down to simmer the potato/onion/garlic mixture, do you leave the top on or off the pot? I figure evaporating some of the liquid off (with the top off) will make a thicker soup, but I am not sure what is intended…Smells delicious as I am cooking it now!

  60. Susan says:

    I don’t let my soup cool before blending it — no pan to wash from heating it up :) If you want a thicker soup, don’t use all the water/broth when you blend it up. There are sooooooo many ways to vary this to make it different everytime — I eat veggie based soups like this four or five nights a week, especially in winter. A little nutmeg, ginger, and/or cumin is good in sweet potato or squash based soups. You can also do this with regular potatoes. I sometimes add leftover cooked pasta to my soup for something different.

  61. AJ says:

    I know this sounds strange but I mixed in a spoonful of peanut butter to each bowl I served and it was delicious! I also used 4 cups of chicken broth and only 3 cups of water. Great soup!

    • allyson says:

      not strange at all! (to me, at least) I often add peanut butter to soups… so glad it worked well here! thanks!

  62. Mellissa says:

    I made it and enjoyed it tonight. I added Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning for a little more kick :) My husband and I both thought corn would be nice in it, for more texture.

  63. Sam says:

    I just made it. Delish! Love the chunky texture.

  64. Victoria says:

    Anybody have a general idea of servings in this recipe? I’ve got four little ones plus husband and myself, and I just want to be sure I don’t need to double it!

  65. Madison says:

    How many servings does this make? I am making it for about 20 friends tomorrow night and trying to figure out how much more I need to buy for it. Looks amazing

  66. Robin Aiken says:

    I made this tonight…followed the receipt exactly. It was delicious!

  67. Kate says:

    Delicious – I made a few revisions. I sauteed the onion and garlic a little first, subbed organic chicken broth (veg would be good to, but I had chicken on hand) for the water to add more flavor and pureed the whole pot. Thanks for the recipe

  70. Kristin says:

    My texture was off on this soup, it was a tad bit gritty…any suggestions?

    • Kele says:

      I’ve made this at least a half dozen times and have never had that problem! Did you leave the peels on the sweet potatoes? I could see that doing it. Either that or maybe your cauliflower wasn’t washed enough and got some grit into the soup? I can’t imagine what else in the ingredients would have come out less than velvety smooth. :\

  72. Danno says:

    When I made it, I found it to be a little bland and thin at first. I’m more of a thick chowder kind of guy. I added cornstarch to the broth to thicken it, and some more garam masala directly to the soup to give it more spice. Is the garlic supposed to be sliced or minced? Also, what did you add to garnish the soup in the photo? Chives?

    Overall, it’s a simple, good soup. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Diana says:

      I’m not sure but it looks like Chia Seeds on the top of the soup.

    • Susan says:

      If you don’t want to use cornstarch to thicken it, just cook a few more veggies or don’t use all the water/broth when blending.

  74. Lauren says:

    So you take half of the soup with water, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic and puree; then add it back to the other part which is still water & veggies? Seems weird to add a puree back to water and solid veggies – even if they are tender. Thanks!

    • Sandra says:

      You put the pureed soup back into the unpureed part so you get a thicker chunky soup:)

      sounds great! Thanks for the recipe

  87. Barb says:

    What is garam marsala? Is it a wine or spice?

    • allyson says:

      Hi Barb,

      Garam Masal is a spice mixture used in Indian cooking. Usually you can pick it up next to other spices in a general grocery store. :)

  88. Barbara Ingram says:

  98. Mollyliscious says:

    Did you use yams? I got some sweet potatoes and they were white. Does it make a difference if you use a white sweet potato versus a yam?

    • allyson says:

      hey Molly, good question. I used sweet potatoes, just an orange variety: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_potato I’m sure you can use the white variety here, it may just be a touch less sweet.

      I unfortunately rarely see yams anywhere but Asian markets or specialty stores where I’m from… but I know this is a confusing and much debated topic, that’s why I’m providing the link. :) What I used was of a fleshy orange variety, with a thin golden skin. However, you have sparked my curiosity as to what this would taste like with a yam, since I actually prefer them to sweet potatoes. I bet delicious!

  99. Alimax says:

    I just made this and it’s very tasty & easy! I added some fresh grated ginger at the end as I felt it was missing a little zip and the ginger worked just great!

  109. robin says:

    Are those scallions in the soup? What are the black seeds?

    • allyson says:

      yes, but they are just garnish… not at all integral to the recipe. the black garnish is kallonji, again, not at all important in the recipe. :)

    • allyson says:

      Thanks, Peg! It’s supposed to get sprinkled on top of the cauliflower while roasting, just a dash or three. So glad you caught that. Since so many people have made this happily so far, I guess I’ll suggest it as optional. :)

      Thanks again!

    I’m cooking this right now its simmering and smelling good!!!
    I was wondering is you can freeze the leftovers?

    • allyson says:

      hey Jessica,
      yeah, I’d say it would freeze pretty well. Freezing may change the texture of the cauliflower a tad, but cauliflower freezes well, so it shouldn’t be a bad (or even significant) change. :)

    This looks delicious and I can’t wait to make it! I’m also extremely happy that it’s in a vintage Pyrex snowflake bowl. Super cute!

    Hello!
    I so made this yesterday for lunch and added some ground flaxseed b/c I put it in everything and need the omega 3′s in my diet :) It was a really good soup! And today I spotted some leftover cranberry sauce in my fridge (not from thanksgiving) and needed to use it so I added a little bit and it tasted really good! haha. Weird right?!

    I could have sworn I commented the night I made this but I don’t see it so not sure…I wasn’t sure about this soup but decided to make it. I’m not a big sweet soup person. Oh boy was it good. I added some Mexican Oregano and topped with curry spiced almonds. mmmmmmm mmmmmm. Thank you for the recipe! It was so easy, I’ll be making it many times!

  118. [...] my quest for amazing vegan Christmas recipes, I stumbled across this sweet potato cauliflower soup recipe from Manifest Vegan. The recipe called my attention with it’s sweet orange color and [...]

    Just made this and it is so good. Roasting the cauliflower is key and worth the extra step or two.

    This time I roasted the cauliflower, the sweet potatoes too then put it all in the crockpot and added a handful of dried lentils. Soooo good.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  120. Could use use frozen cauliflower in this? Thats all i have on hand. How much? thanks!

    • allyson says:

      Hello Ariana,

      Unfortunately I don’t think the frozen would work well, since it has to be roasted… but you could give it a whirl. May not make a bad soup, just a little different. :) The ratio would be the same… anywhere from 4-6 cups.

    Just made this recipe-Delicious :-)

    I made this for dinner tonight, with a few modifications. I only had 1 sweet potato on hand so I used a couple of small red potatoes and a russet as substitutes for the other 2 sweet potatoes. I also threw in some random spices at the end to finish it off. It turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

  123. Monique Koch says:

    This soup looks very good. I’m adding cauliflower to my grocery list right now. :-)

  124. I LOVE SOUP. I have a big kabocha squash sitting on my counter that’s been seductively whispering my name every time I pass it, and I think it’s time I give it some attention! Kabocha cauliflower instead of sweet potato cauliflower? I think that will make a yummy substitution… :) Thanks for this!

    A five ingredient soup that looks so good is insane- I really have to try this one! It looks perfectly creamy and comforting, which is just what I could use for all of these rainy days we have forecasted for the coming days…

  126. I know what I’m having for dinner tonight!!!!!

  127. Katrina says:

    I can’t get over how simple this is! This soup sounds lovely.

  128. Tiffany says:

    Wow, what a vibrant soup! It sounds delicious and perfect for enjoying on a chilly autumn day. I like that the list of ingredients is so simple, too.

  129. This recipe sounds delicious and the colours look amazing! There is nothing better than a warm soup on a fall evening!

  130. Mandee says:

    That is one pretty soup and not a combination I’ve made before so I’ll be trying this one out ;)

  131. Angela says:

    Now THAT is a good-looking cauliflower soup! I made one once that looked like glue… and didn’t taste much better! This one has been bookmarked. As always, thank you :)

    • Marilyn says:

      Yeah…..I made a regular cauliflower soup that was just a waste as well. Your post made me smile.

  132. Kierstan says:

    Well, what good timing! I just dug up some beautiful sweet potatoes form my garden! Can’t wait to give this a try…I love orange soups and can’t get enough of them in the fall/winter.

  133. jessy says:

    bring on the orangeness, Allyson! it’s MoFo and i think the more orange the better. i’m dig’n your dishware and all i need to make your soup happen is cauliflower. wheeeeeeeeeee!
