Curried Cauliflower Bisque

In my pre-paleo days, I loved to eat Indian food! My particular favorite item was a simple curried lentil dish called Dhal. A mildly spicy, thick lentil stew, my favorite thing was to pair it with Saag, a curried spinach dish and rice. Going paleo has been a game-changer for me and my health is better than it has been for years, so I don't miss my old lifestyle one bit, but I do have happy memories of eating dhal and saag over pilau rice!

This Curried Cauliflower Bisque recipe is 100% paleo friendly, and is made with no legumes, grains, dairy, and nightshades. What's more, it is a warm, spicy treat that is safe for individuals with autoimmune disease or a nightshade sensitivity. For me, this curried cauliflower bisque has all the wonderful, aromatic curry flavor and qualities of my old favorite dhal, minus the ingredients that I can't tolerate!

Easy to prepare, and even better to eat, try adding some leftover shredded chicken and sauteed spinich or kale to make it a complete paleo meal that is satisfying and delicious!

Curried Cauliflower Bisque


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets

  • 1 medium onion, sliced thinly

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 4 cups bone broth

  • 1-2 teaspoons of powdered turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger

  • 1 teaspoon dried cilantro

  • 1 cup coconut milk (full fat), and a little extra to drizzle on top

  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • Salt to taste


  • In a large pot, melt the coconut oil

  • Add the sliced onions and stir often, making sure the onions don't burn. Cook slowly on a low heat if needed to ensure the onions are caramelized thoroughly

  • Add the minced garlic, stiring until the garlic releases it's scent, making sure not to burn it

  • Next, add the bone broth, cauliflower, turmeric and ginger

  • Bring the pot to a boil and then turn down the heat and allow the contents to simmer

  • When the cauiflower is fork tender, add the cilantro and coconut milk

  • Blend the bisque with an emersion blender until smooth. If you don't have an emersion blender, you can use a traditional blender, but you have to cool the soup first. In this case, it will need to be reheated before serving

  • Salt to taste

  • Serve hot with a light drizzle of coconut milk
