Dairy Free Cauliflower 'Cheese' Soup

I've finally gotten around to converting one of our family favourite soup recipes to use in the Thermomix. I used to make this with a 250g block of cream cheese added, but recently 2 of our 3 girls have had to exclude dairy from their diet, so I tried to see if I could replicate the flavour, minus the dairy. I think I succeeded! I hope you let me know if you try it


1 onion
1 garlic clove
30g olive oil
1 tin (400ml) coconut cream
800ml water
350g roughly chopped cauliflower (can use some stem and inner leaves)
2 Tb TM veggie stock paste concentrate
2 bay leaves
1/4 ts curry powder (or to taste)
1 ts nutritional yeast (optional)


Chop onion and garlic for 3 sec, speed 4.5. Scrape down
Add oil and cook 4 mins, 120c (Model 5) or Varoma (TM31), speed soft
Add coconut cream, top up tin with water to wash out and add another 800ml water
Add all other ingredients
Cook for 20 minutes, 100c, speed 1
Check cauliflower is soft, cook for longer if need otherwise proceed
Remove bay leaves.
Puree on speed 8, turning speed up very gradually, for 40 seconds


Recipe can increased by 50% to make 1.5 x batch
Nutritional yeast gives this the 'cheesy' flavour without the cream cheese. 
By all means add a 250g block of cream cheese if you like. It will taste superb!
