Cream of cauliflower & roasted red pepper soup


The cold weather calls for more comfort food, so I came up with a hearty recipe for creamy cauliflower & roasted red pepper soup that will warm you up.

I cook cauliflower for its health benefits, as it is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It contains almost all the vitamins and minerals our bodies need to function correctly.

For me, cauliflower is a superfood because, for years, it helped me keep my endometriosis in check and get through menopause just fine.

To prevent endometriosis flare-ups, I add cauliflower, broccoli, or cabbage to my diet almost daily.

During the cold season, soups are on our menu daily.

Since I get bored, I always have to combine ingredients to get a new delicious recipe. My taste buds always guide me to the best combination. When it comes to soup, the possibilities are endless.

Roasted red peppers have a sweet, charred flavor and pair well with the nutty flavor of cauliflower.

This soup does not contain heavy cream, only goat’s milk.

With red peppers and carrots, this soup also contains vitamin A.

In short, this creamy cauliflower soup with roasted red peppers is delicious and rich in nutrients.


I love the simplicity of the ingredients, the creamy texture, and the beautiful color.

I am always looking for ways to incorporate cauliflower into my diet without feeling its flavor. And this soup tastes just divine and hits the spot.

This cream of cauliflower soup with roasted red peppers is excellent for cold days and is quick to make.

How about cozying up for lunch or dinner with a bowl of this creamy cauliflower soup & roasted red pepper soup?


Here are a few impressive facts about the health benefits of cauliflower: 


Cauliflower is rich in vitamin C and provides 77% of the recommended daily requirement.

Cauliflower is rich in sulforaphane.

You may have never heard of sulforaphane. The supplements that contain this compound are expensive, but cauliflower provides it to your body for free.

Sulforaphane is a powerful antioxidant that can protect against cancer and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Studies show that sulforaphane can keep arteries healthy and lower high blood pressure.

 Tip for getting more sulforaphane in cauliflower:

Almost three years ago, I came across a study that said if you cut cauliflower into florets and let them sit for 30 minutes before cooking, the levels of sulforaphane increase.

Cauliflower is high in fiber and low in calories but rich in nutrients and antioxidants that support our health.

According to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, “all diseases begin in the gut.”

Studies have shown that nearly 70 percent of our immune system is in the gut. So if you take care of it, you will stay healthy.

In addition, a healthy gut is crucial for hormonal balance. Also, fiber is needed to flush toxins (such as pesticides) and excess estrogen from the body, vital to preventing endometriosis flare-ups.

Cauliflower is helpful in weight loss.

Cauliflower is an excellent vegetable for weight loss because it is low in calories and contains a lot of fiber, which promotes a feeling of fullness.

Cauliflower is popular with weight loss enthusiasts because it is also low in carbohydrates (about 3 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams) and is a good substitute for starchy foods. Cauliflower rice and cauliflower pizza dough are just a few examples.

Note: Consumption of cruciferous vegetables, which includes cauliflower, should be avoided by people with hypothyroidism because it interferes with iodine production, especially if you are iodine deficient. Iodine is essential for normal thyroid function. In my opinion, there is no problem eating cauliflower in reasonable amounts. I add vegetables other than cauliflower to my soup: peas, onions, carrots, and garlic.


Fiber supports a healthy gut microbiome (the good bacteria in your gut), aids in weight loss by limiting overeating, and helps remove toxins and excess estrogen from your body.


Why do I prefer whole goat milk instead of cow milk?


Since endometriosis is part of my life, I must be picky about dairy products.

After some experimentation, I have found that goat milk-based dairy products work for me, but I try to eat them only a few times a week.

Some days I swap out the goat milk for almond, coconut, or quinoa milk.

One of the benefits of goat milk is that it is easier to digest.

However, early studies show that goat’s milk may have anti-inflammatory properties, which cow’s milk does not.

Goat milk contains less lactose than cow’s milk, which may explain why some people who are sensitive to lactose can enjoy goat milk.


  What are the ingredients for this cream of cauliflower & roasted red pepper soup?



 500 g red bell peppers (about four large red peppers), roasted

 500 g cauliflower florets, fresh or frozen

Two yellow onions, quartered

Four cloves garlic, roughly chopped

One medium carrot, peeled and roughly chopped

Three medium potatoes, peeled and diced

One teaspoon of dried oregano

One teaspoon of dried basil

One teaspoon of ground turmeric

Three cups water (or organic vegetable broth) or more. It depends on the consistency of the soup you like.

 2 cups organic whole goat milk

 Four tablespoons of olive oil

 Salt and pepper to taste


I pureed the soup with a hand blender. You can also use a stand blender, but you need to transfer the soup.


How to prepare this cream of cauliflower & roasted red pepper soup?


 Step 1

 Roast the red peppers. You can also buy roasted peppers in jars at the store.

 Note: I prefer to roast them on the stove, as it takes less time than in the oven.

 Place the peppers directly on the grate of your stove.

 Use tongs to turn the peppers over on all sides.

 When the peppers are evenly charred, place them in a medium bowl and cover them.

 Let them steam for 30 minutes. It will allow you to peel off the skin easily.

 Peel and seed them.


 Step 2:

 Place the onions, olive oil, and a tablespoon of water in a large pot over medium heat.

 Toss them until they are coated with olive oil.

 Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the onion is soft.

Note: You may wonder why I add the splash of water when cooking the onions.

It is an old-school trick to avoid stomach burns and protect your gallbladder.

 Add the garlic, carrots, and potatoes.

 Stir well and cook for 2 minutes.

 Pour in 3 cups of water or organic vegetable broth and cook until potatoes are tender.

 Step 3:

 Stir in the cauliflower, roasted red pepper, turmeric, basil, and oregano.

 Add 2 cups of goat milk for a creamier texture.

 Bring the soup to a boil and turn the heat to low.

 Let the soup simmer for 10 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender.

 Puree the soup until it is creamy and smooth. Use a hand blender.

 Add more water (organic vegetable broth) or milk to achieve the desired consistency.

 Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.


Ideas for serving this cream of cauliflower & roasted red pepper soup:


Garnish it with crunchy croutons.

My favorite. Croutons are easy to make.

 How to make croutons?


 Ingredients for the croutons: 

 Four slices of whole wheat bread (enough for two servings). Cut them into small squares.

Five or more cloves of minced garlic. It depends on how garlicky you want the croutons to be

 A drizzle of olive oil

 ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

 ½ teaspoon dried oregano



 Mix all ingredients until evenly coated

 Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius

 Place the croutons in a baking dish and bake for 15 minutes or until evenly golden.

 Swirl them from time to time to prevent burning.


Sprinkle with grated cheese and freshly chopped parsley

If you are a cheese lover, you can grate some of your favorite cheese on top.


Garnish with a spoonful of yogurt (or coconut cream) and fresh parsley

Sometimes I like to add a spoonful of goat or sheep milk yogurt on top.



You can also freeze this soup in freezer containers.

It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
