Best Damn Cauliflower Soup (plus DULSE!)

Vegan, and unpretentious!? This soup is a winner. This cauliflower soup will likely change your life. It’s also one of the easiest things ever to make. So, a word of advice: if you like your life how it is, and you don’t plan on changin’, don’t attempt this recipe, or even think about it. Its power is of no maximum strength. Drastic things may be in store. Alright, enough hype.. just do it!


1 head cauliflower

Salt and pepper (to taste) plus 1 TBSP

Spices (rosemary, SAGE***, chili powder, garlic powder, or dulse)

1/2 large onion (or 1 medium onion)

Better than Boullion Veggie seasoning

You’ll also need:

A great attitude and a hungry belly! Nobody likes a sourpuss. Love is the #1 ingredient, people!

Stuff You Must Do:

Wash and tear 1 head of cauliflower into florets manually (they can be any size, but the size of a golf ball or less is best).

Add 1 TBSP salt to a bowl of water, and soak cauliflower in the bowl for 15 minutes. This just makes it all briney and delicious. Probably not necessary if you’re in a real pinch.

Afterwards, dry cauliflower completely. Place on a baking sheet under the broiler (on low) for 10 minutes. Once the edges are getting slightly blackened, flip the cauliflower onto the un-blackened side, and continue to broil for 5 more minutes.

While you are broiling (you double-tasking mofo), add the chopped onion to a stock pot with 1/8 cup olive or coconut oil. Cook it on med-high heat til the onion is translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle onion with garlic powder and torn up fresh sage. Eyeball it, yo! No better way to measure. You can quote me on that.

Add the cauliflower to the onion and oil. Add 3 cups water and 2 tsp Better than Boullion to the pot. Now is the time to season as you wish! Salt, pepper, chili, dulse, anything! Simmer all together, about 10 minutes, until the cauliflower is tender. 

Set off heat for a few minutes, before pulsing til soft in a blender. This shouldn’t take long! 

Pour into a bowl. Garnish with chili powder, rosemary, and.. DULSE!

(For those of you who don’t like dulse.. it is a miracle “sea vegetable” that I just adore putting on everything lately. I use the flakes, not the strips..

 but dulse is dulse. Love is love. And I love it all.

Dulse in its natural habitat- by the sea!

At first I thought it reeked of old panties, but now I think it’s just divine. 

Pretty dulse!
