This vegetarian and vegan recipe for cauliflower soup with potatoes is very low in fat and is a low-calorie vegetarian recipe. Unlike many other potato soup recipes, this one uses vegetable broth, vegan margarine and bay leaves to add flavor instead of butter. That means that this low-fat vegetarian soup recipe has just two grams of fat per serving. Because of that, you'll want to be sure to use a good-quality vegetable broth for the most flavor. If you're not using a fresh, homemade vegetable broth, you can use powdered broth or vegetarian bouillon cubes for a little extra to boost the flavor.
This cauliflower and potato soup recipe is vegetarian, vegan, and as long as you use a gluten-free vegetable broth (read the label, as some are and some aren't gluten-free), it's gluten-free as well.

- 1 tablespoon olive oil (or vegan margarine)
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 onion (diced)
- 1 potato (diced)
- 1 large head cauliflower (chopped)
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 2 bay leaves
- Salt (to taste)
- Black pepper (to taste)
- 1 dash nutmeg
- Optional: vegan cheese for topping (grated)
- Optional: green onions for topping (chopped)
Gather the ingredients.
Sauté the onion and garlic in the vegan margarine or olive oil in a large soup or stock pot over medium heat, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onions and garlic are almost soft.
Add the diced potato and chopped cauliflower and cook for a few more minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the vegetable broth and bay leaves and bring to a simmer.
Reduce the heat to medium-low once the mixture is simmering, cover the pot, and allow to cook for 25 to 30 minutes.
Carefully remove the bay leaves, then transfer the soup to a blender and puree until smooth and creamy, or leave a bit of texture if desired.
Season lightly with a bit of salt, pepper and a dash of nutmeg and reheat if needed.
Top with grated vegan cheese and green onions, if desired, just before serving.
Use Caution When Blending Hot Ingredients
Steam expands quickly in a blender, and can cause ingredients to splatter everywhere or cause burns. To prevent this, fill the blender only one-third of the way up, vent the top, and cover with a folded kitchen towel while blending.
