curried cauliflower rice kale soup

This soup is an easy soup recipe and nutritious meal-in-a-bowl.  Roasted curried cauliflower “rice” with kale and even more veggies to fill your bowl!  A delicious soup to make again and again!


  • 5-6 cups of Cauliflower florets (about 3-4 cups when “riced”).  See notes.
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Curry Powder or Curry Seasoning (turmeric is usually included in the curry seasoning/powder)
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Olive Oil for roasting
  • 3/4 cup Red Onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. minced Garlic
  • 2 tsp. Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
  • 8 Kale Leaves with stems removed and chopped
  • 2 cups (5 oz.) chopped Carrots
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Almond Milk or Coconut Milk (the drinking kind works best and is smoother).
  • 1/2 tsp. Red Pepper or Chili Flakes (use less if you don’t want as spicy)
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • Salt to taste after cooked


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a small bowl, toss your cauliflower florets with the curry powder, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and 3 Tbsp. oil.
  3. Spread the cauliflower florets on a baking dish or roasting pan.  Place in oven and roast for 20-22 minutes until tender but not overcooked.  I like them slightly under cooked.
  4. Remove and set aside.
  5. While the cauliflower is cooling, prep the rest of your veggies by chopping them up on a cutting board.
  6. Next place cauliflower florets in a food processor or blender and pulse a few times until the cauliflower is chopped or “riced”.
  7. Once all the cauliflower is riced and kale/veggies are chopped, prepare your cooking pot.
  8. Place onion, 2 tsp. oil,  in large stock pot and saute for 5 – 8 minutes until softened. Add minced garlic and cook 30 seconds, until fragrant
  9. Next add in your broth, milk, veggies, cauliflower “rice”, and the red chili pepper and black pepper.
  10. Bring to a quick boil, reduce heat and simmer for another 20 minutes or so until veggies are cooked through.
  11. Add dash of sea salt if desired once ready to serve.
  12. Garnish with herbs and nut/seed crackers crumbles.​


On making cauliflower rice:  If you don’t have a food processor, just finely chop the cauliflower.  You can also buy pre-riced cauliflower and roast it.  Be sure not to over process the cauliflower when cooked.  You don’t want to make a puree.  Just lightly chop.
Feel free to use other veggies besides kale and carrots.  All work great.
I found that almond milk works great in this recipe.  Keeps it light and smooth.  Cashew and coconut milk work as well.
You can add other toppings such as crackers, nuts, cheese, etc.  You can also add in cooked chicken or meat.

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
