Fall is here (almost) and that means I am ready for heartier, warmer meals. When the weather turns cooler I start craving warmer spices that are not as appetizing to me during the hot months.
I love soup and stews. During the Fall, Winter, and Spring, I eat soup or stew almost every day. And even during the summer I may keep the soups coming, though they tend to be lighter and not as hearty. (If you want to check out my extensive soup and stew library, you can do that here). 🙂
This year, the second the weather started cooling off, I started craving curry. Something about that specific collection of nourishing spices was calling my name. Ginger, turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, cumin… all the spices that just feel right when Fall comes around.
It was perfect timing too because Sprouts Market reached out and asked if I would be interested in developing a new Fall recipe for them. Of course I said yes and this recipe was born. Thank you for hiring me for this fun project Sprouts! <3
I knew I wanted curry. And I knew I wanted soup. And cauliflower was on sale. Apples are coming into season. And poof! Curried Cauliflower Soup with Chicken and Apples.
Done and done.
It took a little tweaking to get the texture and flavor just right, but I am LOVING this soup. I made a massive batch the final time I made it and have it neatly portioned in my freezer so I can grab it out for quick meals all month long.
For this recipe, I used Sprouts’ brand curry powder, but if you are the DIY type, check out my recipes for homemade curry powder here. It is so good and super easy to make.
The curried cauliflower soup is great on its own, but I really enjoyed adding the chicken and apples for a heartier meal. Like I said above, it freezes and reheats really well, so make extra!
Curried Cauliflower Soup with Chicken and Apples :: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free
This easy-to-make soup is filling and full of warm fall flavors. While the cauliflower soup is excellent on its own, the chicken and apples round out the dish for a heartier meal.
Ingredients: Curried Cauliflower Soup
- 1 lg head of cauliflower (approx. 2-3 pounds), rough chopped
- 6 lg carrots, rough chopped
- 1 lg sweet onion, rough chopped
- 3 tsp Sprouts salt-free curry powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 quart organic chicken broth
- 2 cups full-fat coconut milk
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped for garnish
Ingredients: Chicken and Apples
- 1 pound organic chicken breasts
- 2 lg apples (your choice as to variety)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
Instructions: Soup and Chicken
- Wash and rough chop your cauliflower, carrots, and onion. Place in a large soup pot.
- Sprinkle your spices over the vegetables and add your chicken broth (do not add coconut milk – this will be added at the end).
- Cover and cook over medium heat until the vegetables are tender (about 30 minutes), stirring the mixture occasionally.
- While the vegetables are cooking, cut your chicken breasts and apples into bite-sized chunks.
- Heat your coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat and add the chicken. Cook until golden brown.
- Add the diced apples and spices. Stir to combine and turn off heat.
- Your soup vegetables should be done now, so remove from heat and add your coconut milk.
- Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth and creamy. You can also use a regular blender and puree in batches. Please be careful because it’s HOT!
- Stir in your chicken and apple mixture OR you can serve the soup in a bowl and top the soup with the chicken and apples.
- Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve.
About Sprouts Farmers Market
First of all, thank you to my sponsor, Sprouts Farmers Market, for allowing me to test out even more of their wonderful products and put this amazing recipe together. I hope you enjoy this warming soup as the weather turns cool in your neck of the woods. Sprouts has been a pleasure to work with and I hope to get the opportunity to develop more tasty recipes for them in the future.
If you’re not already familiar with Sprouts Farmers Market, they are a natural foods grocery store focused on helping people with their healthy eating journey. They love to inspire, educate, and empower every person to eat healthier and live a better life. Their mission is closely aligned with my own, which is why I was thrilled to partner with them on this project.
Their goal is to create a shopping experience that is fun, easy, and affordable. They have bright and cheery neighborhood grocery stores and offer a huge selection of fresh, natural, and organic foods at competitive prices.
They just recently built a new Sprouts Farmers Market not too far from me and I’m excited to have another addition to my grocery shopping routine. Their other locations in Denver have never been in my line of travel so I only was able to shop there when I was in different parts of town.
This new store is HUGE and beautiful. It was a lot of fun to stroll up and down the aisle looking at products and comparing prices with other stores in the area. They almost always came out a bit cheaper than other places. And I do like saving a buck or two on the grocery bill. 🙂 They also have clip and save mobile coupons which can save you even more moolah!
