Cauliflower Sweet Potato Turmeric Soup – Daniel Fast Recipe

Daniel Fast Recipe


  • 1 medium white onion (300 g), diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp peeled fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • 1 large or 2 small carrots (160 g), peeled and diced
  • 4 cups (400 g) cauliflower, chopped into small florets
  • 2 cups (350 g) peeled and diced sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk (see notes)
  • good pinch of black pepper, or to taste
  • sea salt, to taste
  • squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice
  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, saute the onion, garlic, ginger, carrot, cauliflower and sweet potato in 1/4 cup of the vegetable broth until fragrant and starting to soften, about 10 minutes. Add a splash more broth if it’s starting to stick.
  2. Add the rest of the vegetable broth and simmer lightly until the cauliflower and sweet potato are tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in the coconut milk and if needed, more vegetable broth to reach desired consistency.
  4. Blend about 1/2 to 3/4 of the soup so it’s somewhat creamy but still has some cauliflower and sweet potato chunks. You can do this by scooping it into a blender or by using an immersion blender right in the pot. If you prefer a completely creamy soup, feel free to blend it all until smooth.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice, if desired.
  6. Serve on it’s own or topped with roasted chickpeas and fresh cilantro.


  1. To make roasted chickpeas, add 1 can of drained and rinsed chickpeas, or about 2 cups of cooked chickpeas to a pan and drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil. Sprinkle with whatever spices you want, you can just use salt and pepper, or add a bit of turmeric and cumin as well. Roast them at 400 degrees until crispy, which take about 30 to 40 minutes.
  2. You can use full-fat or light canned coconut milk. Use full-fat for a richer and creamier soup with a bit more coconut flavour. Use light coconut milk for less coconut flavour and a lower fat recipe.
