low sodium chicken or vegetable stock
yellow onion, diced
yellow curry powder (I used madras curry)
cloves garlic, minced
head cauliflower, leafs removed, and coarsely chopped
medium-small sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
low sodium chicken stock or vegetable stock
Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
Generous pinch of saffron threads
Fresh ground pepper and additional sea salt to taste
Place the 1 cup raw cashews into the 1 cup chicken broth and allow to soak 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile sauté the onion in the coconut oil over medium heat in a large soup pot until translucent. Add the turmeric, berbere, and curry powder, reduce heat and stir. Allow the spices to become fragrant. Add the garlic, making sure not to let it burn.
Put the cashews and soaking broth into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour this liquid into the soup pot along with the onions, garlic, and spices. Add the remaining broth and water and allow simmer covered over medium low heat until the cauliflower and sweet potato chunks are tender.
Note: You can thin the soup with additional water to desired consistency. You just may have to add a little more seasoning.
