Curry Coconut Cauliflower Soup with Pear

Something magical happens when you put cauliflower in the dehydrator. The slow heating and dehydrating process mellows, sweetens and concentrates the flavors leaving you with a delicious, irresistible treat. Combine the cauliflower with the exciting taste of curry and coconut, and you have a delicious raw fall soup sure to delight.



Heated in the dehydrator or gently on the stove top* your cold weather cravings will be more than satisfied. The pear purée layers in a touch of freshness that marries beautifully with the curry. Crispy onions top it all off.

Read through this raw food recipe and you will quickly realize with a little advanced planning, this soup super easy to prepare. You can soak the cashews and start the dehydration the night before, or early in the morning and then forget about it until you are ready to assemble the soup.

*Be very careful heating on the stove. The temp will rise VERY quickly.

    If you are friendly with your local grocer, they may be able to order coconuts for you.

      You could try full fat coconut milk. Just know it isn’t raw. Cheers!

    Hello…. this cauliflower soup looks amazing!… I am not in an area where there are any fresh coconuts but I do have some organic shredded coconut… I’m sure it will not taste as good but how much would I use of that, or is there something else that I could use in its place that will make this soup as tasty?…. Can’t wait to try this!…. love your site!… joy, Annie

    Hello, may I ask about how much coconut is used in this recipe? I cannot get thai coconuts right now, but I can get some unsweet shredded or flakes. Thanks 🙂

      Hi, Tira, A young Thai coconut has about 3/4 flesh. But the fresh flesh from a young Thai coconut is very different than dried coconut. Cheers!
