This vegetarian cauliflower soup, inspired by a recipe in “Moro East” by Sam and Sam Clark, is silky and elegant, and couldn't be easier to make. A touch of coconut milk enriches the natural sweetness of the cauliflower without weighing it down. If you don't have hot paprika, substitute sweet paprika plus a pinch of cayenne pepper. For ease, use an immersion blender instead of a regular blender and puree the soup directly in the pot.




Don't undercook the cauliflower. It will be very tender after only 15 minutes of simmering, but cooking for the full 20 minutes will ensure that the pieces break down completely when pureed for a silky-smooth texture.
