Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup

As I was scanning through pinterest a few weeks ago, I stumbled on a recipe for Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup on Manifest Vegan. I'm not a huge fan of sweet potatoes or cauliflower, but the soup looked good, so I decided to give it try. I did make a few slight modifications on the Ingredients list, but you'll need to head over to Manifest Vegan to see the actual recipe!

1 head of cauliflower
3 sweet potatoes
1 sweet onion
1 can of Chickpeas (I added this for some extra protein)
Garlic powder
6.5 cups Water
Lots of pepper

The Cooking Process:

You'll definitely want to check out her original post, because her pictures are so much better then my own! For not really liking sweet potato or cauliflower soup, I actually really liked this one! It's warm and filling for a cold, winter day! I made a big batch and was able to freeze half of it for later! This soup was very easy and quick to make, which I enjoy! My only complaint was that it used a few dishes to cook, but really, that is such a small thing that this recipe is still WELL worth your time!

Now it's your turn!
Do you make a lot of soups in the winter? What are some of your favorite ways to add protein to your favorite dishes? 


  1. That sounds fantastic! I love the idea of adding chickpeas for protein! I need to get better at that, so thanks for the idea. :)

  2. Thanks for the recipe which I will definitely try! I absolutely make soups all year round. My favourite is chicken and/or turkey soup because I love making the broth. Even if I have no time for making soup right away, I bag the bones and put them in the freezer. I also bag vegetable peelings and celery tops and bottoms and freeze them too so when it is time to make a broth I have lots of goodies to put into it. I think I love making the broth as much as I love making the soup, the simmering smells in my house just make me feel good. But chickpeas for protein is a new one for me and I will defintely try that! Besides meat or cheese I would not have known how to add protein to soup!
