We call this soup, golden vegan cauliflower bisque, but it is technically not a bisque. Bisque is a highly seasoned, creamy, and smooth soup that is made from crustaceans like lobster, crabs, langoustine, shrimp, and crayfish. It is a cooking method used to extract the flavor of crustaceans that can’t go to market. This recipe utilizes the traditional bisque cooking method except it uses cauliflower instead of seafood. This makes it great for vegans and vegetarians, so they can enjoy the classic bisque.
Cauliflower has such a high place in Indian cuisine for two reasons: it is a great meat substitute and it is very healthy. This wonderful cruciferous vegetable helps to reduce your risk of developing cancer, brain disorders, and heart conditions. It also helps to detoxify the body and improve iron absorption. Iron is very important for your body’s functionality; it is needed to produce blood, specifically hemoglobin. Without enough hemoglobin, your body won’t be able to carry oxygen to your vital organs.
