Essential oil recipes are a great way to create unique and exotic flavors with just a touch of oil. Spiced with curry powder and Ginger Vitality™, this easy cauliflower soup has a complex flavor that’s tasty enough to make you forget take-out. Plus, coconut milk gives it a rich, creamy flavor you’ll instantly fall for. Keep this recipe vegan by skipping the suggested garnish.

Ingredients:

2 cups coconut milk
3–4 tablespoons soy milk

1–2 teaspoons curry powder
1 pinch sea salt

For optional garnish:
½ cup cream
