Cauliflower, Potato And Quinoa soup

Trying to find meals that all 4 of my daughters will eat can be quite a task. This cauliflower, potato and quinoa soup was a hit with 3 out of 4 so that is a win for me 🙂


  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups soymilk
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water


  1. Prepare quinoa by rinsing with cold water before placing into small pan with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15-20 minutes. Fluff with fork and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, cook carrot, garlic, red pepper and butter over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Add potatoes, cauliflower, vegetable broth, milk, bay leaves, thyme and salt. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes.
