Quick Facts

Cook Time: 25 min.
Curry and nutmeg give just the right zing to this vegetable puree.


  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 lb broccoli florets
  • 1 lb cauliflower florets
  • 1 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 5 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups lowfat plain yogurt
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg, ground
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper


  • In a large soup pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and saut garlic and onions until translucent. Add broccoli and cauliflower florets and about 2 tablespoons of the vegetable broth to generate steam. Place lid on pot, reduce heat to medium, and steam vegetables for about 5 minutes. Add curry powder and remaining broth. Simmer until vegetables are very tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Once cooked, ladle broth and vegetables into a blender and puree until smooth. Return to soup pot, heat over medium heat, and gradually whisk the yogurt and seasonings into the soup. Once combined, do not bring to a boil to prevent the yogurt from curdling. Serve warm.
