This recipe for Low Fat Creamy Cauliflower Saffron Soup makes a delicate, soup with subtle flavors and velvety texture. Adding a potato to the soup instead of cream gives it a creamy texture without the added calories.
Albeit flavorful, this is a subtle soup. If you are looking for an intense soup with big flavors, this is not the soup you’re looking for, but I happen to find it elegant and delicious. I’ve made it for lunch and serve it with warm bread, but it also makes a lovely starter for dinner parties as well. A friend describes it as ‘A soup that will make you a cauliflower fan even if you’re not.’ Even kids love it. Because it’s so bright in color, they don’t know it’s a vegetable soup and it’s a winner every time!
This is also one of those recipes that tastes even better a day after making it. I often make it a day ahead and re-heat it to serve.
