Roasted cauliflower, fennel and ginger soup

It’s officially time of the year for stews, pho, dessert (or maybe that’s just me?), and of course, we can’t forget soups.

If you’re a meal-planner like me, this soup is a kitchen staple; you need to get it into that plan ASAP. It’s my secret new recipe and it may or may not change your life.

That’s right – I said secret. Consider yourself part of the Supercharged Food Secret Soup Community!

Welcome one and all!

I’ve created this roasted cauliflower, fennel and ginger soup to provide a super simple, delicious and healthy soup that's brimming with robust flavours and prebiotic rich vegetables to boost your gut health and immunity this winter.

It’s the perfect soup for when you feel a sniffle coming on or you feel like something a little zestier than your run-of-the-mill vegetable soup. But to be totally honest, you don’t need a special occasion to whip up this magic – it’s the kind of soup you could have every single day. It’s my everyday kind of soup.

Seeing as you’ve now officially joined the Supercharged Food Secret Soup Community, you’re probably wanting to know the "perks of being a cauliflower" oops member. Well, the main administrators for this soup are fennel, ginger and cauliflower. So, I’ll do the introduction – everybody, meet fennel, ginger and cauliflower.

Fennel loves looking after your bones and can even improve your skin health. If you’re feeling a little bit sluggish, it can help aid digestion and improve your mood and that's always a bonus.

Ginger is a bit of a zesty character but not one to be missed in this mighty trio! Single-handedly helping to fight off inflammation, whilst ginger can be very zesty, it'll always be there to pick up the pieces if you’re feeling nauseous or experiencing muscle soreness.

Finally, cauliflower is the head-honcho in this bowl of goodness. Full of vitamins and minerals to improve your overall health and  high in anti-inflammatory properties to keep you fighting winter bugs all pretty much year long, cauliflower is a long standing ingredient in the SCF soup community!

Add these three together and you’ve got quite the combination.

I've included my anti-inflammatory Golden Gut Blend in this recipe because it loves your gut. Containing diatomaceous earth, along with turmeric and other deliciously healing spices, it works to aid digestion and reduce inflammation to keep your insides glowing and happy. No soup is complete without it. Trust me on this one!

So there you have it - a new recipe for your weekly meal plans.  I hope you feel welcomed into our soupercharged community and feel ready to take on simple soup-making, one veggie at a time!

      Trolls will stop at nothing to try and hurt others, and for you to talk about my deceased step son in your comment is beyond hurtful. By the way your IP address shows exactly where you live in Queensland. If you don’t like the blog please don’t follow it. Thank you.

      • Jayne Bond says:

        Love you recipes and book, I’m always recommending to people over here in the U.K…… ignore the troll, some people are stuck at home with their keyboard, resenting those who have followed their dreams

        Big love 💗

      • Tasja says:

        I think the soup looks really yummy!–Both the ingredients list and inspiring photos. And in my pursuit to converting my tastebuds to like (or at least tolerate ;-D) cauliflower, this recipe looks like a winner! 🙂 (So THERE, troll!!! …Sheez, some people…sigh…)

    Looks really delicious, I’ll be trying it very soon 😊

  3. It never ceases to amaze me that people stoop this low in targeting your step son who passed away. Just terrible. What these kind of evil people don’t understand is that karma is real, and negative vibrations attract just that – negativity. Good luck with that negative, low-life you lead, you horrible troll. I am sure you will get your just desserts served cold. Hopefully it will be one of Lee’s recipes.

    This looks absolutely delicious. Making it TODAY. Yum x

  5. Barbara says:

    My apologies Lee…
    The Emojis were meant for ‘The Troll’

    I think the picture of the soup looks delicious. I love cauliflower, fennel and ginger – I can’t wait to try it.

    Just what my body needed to fight a mild case of sinusitis on a chilly winter day. I love the synergy of GGB in soups! I adapted this recipe by tossing the vegetables in 1T olive oil and 1/2t celtic sea salt before roasting. Then I fried off the fresh ginger and fennel seeds, before putting the roasted vegetables in a pot with chicken stock (remembering to peel the skin from the roasted garlic). I reduced the tamari to 2t and added 1/8 t cayenne pepper. The hummus was omitted and a stick mixer was used instead of a blender. Can’t wait for my second serving tomorrow when the flavour will intensify further. Thanks you Lee for the inspiration.

    God bless

    Hi Lee, if I find it too thick, do I thin it out with water?

  24. Cathy says:

    Mine looked a lot different somehow and I think I used a bit too much ginger as it was a bit fibrous, BUT so delicious and moreish. I added a bit of cooked chicken breast as well 🙂

  25. Anna P. says:

    Made this yesterday! Unfortunately I was out of fresh garlic (eek! How did that happen??) – so I used garlic powder on the fennel and cauliflower as I roasted them. Also, used leeks instead of red onion, since that’s what I had. Omitted the hummus (didn’t have, doing low carb anyway). Added some chopped zucchini, as I find it helps add a velvety texture to pureed veg. soups. After roasting, I simmered the veg. about 20 minutes in a mixture of vegetable and chicken stock, then pureed in my VitaMix (oooh so smooth) — reheated on the stove with about a teaspoon of dry sherry, a couple of TB of (organic) heavy cream, and some half and half (also the turmeric). SO DELICIOUS. And a pretty pale golden color too. When I serve tonight, I’m going to garnish with fried sage leaves. OH. BOY. {insert drooling emoji here} And in a modest portion, this will work nicely on my keto eating plan. Thank you so much for developing this recipe!!

    Can you freeze this soup?

  27. B.E.Rupert says:

    Because I have permanent damage to my brain stem, (Chiaris Malformation) I lose my gag reflex for days at a time and can only eat creamy foods. I am getting weary of my same old pureed soups: cheesy lake, cream of broccoli, butternut squash, and black bean soups. I’m so excited to discover a whole new creamy soup with ingredients I like, but never tried them together before! Yay!

    I made this soup for my family for lunch & they loved it!
    It’s fantastic if you have any inflammation in the body too.

    I am so thankful for this recipe due to it’s anti inflammatory properties and our need to change our diet accordingly. This looks delicious so I am looking forward to getting it done asap!
