Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower and Almond Soup

Ingredients to make Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower and Almond Soup

  • 1 to ½ cups cauliflower florets
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic (1 if large)
  • ½ teaspoon coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili garlic paste
  • Or
  • 2 green chilis/jalapenos slit
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • For garnishing:
  • Extra almonds, slivered or chopped (optional)
  • Chopped green onions or chopped coriander leaves

How to make Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower and Almond Soup

  1. In a pressure pan or saucepot, heat the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add garlic, onions, almonds and cauliflower florets along with jalapenos(if using this instead of chili paste) and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes on medium low.
  2. Add the spice powders (coriander, cumin and cinnamon) along with the chili paste and fry again for about a minute.
  3. Add about 1 to 1 ½ cups of water and close the pressure pan. Cook on high for about 2 whistles. If using a saucepan, cook, covered for about 15 to 20 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.
  4. Once cooked, drain the soup into a pot over a colander. Remove the slit jalapenos and blend the cooked vegetable in a blender to a smooth paste.
  5. Add to the drained liquid and mix well. Add more water if necessary to the consistency you want. Add salt to taste. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Serve garnished with additional almonds, green onions or coriander leaves/cilantro and a drizzle of chili paste. Aromatic and exotic Moroccan spiced cauliflower and almond soup is ready to dig into!!

My Tip:

If you do not have chili-garlic paste or chili paste, use any hot chili sauce or just jalapenos. You can use any oil you prefer instead of olive oil.
