A cozy broth, crispy cauliflower and all the best toppings – this Roasted Cauliflower Tortilla Soup is a delicious vegan soup! Enchilada sauce helps flavor the broth and chipotle peppers add some heat. Top each bowl with crispy tortilla chips, non-dairy yogurt and green onions. Give it a squeeze of lime juice and dig in!

Step One: Roast the Cauliflower

This roasted cauliflower is incredibly simple and adds a crunchy bite to this soup. For the cauliflower you will need:

  • cauliflower florets
  • avocado oil 
  • taco seasoning
  • chipotle peppers in adobo

Add the cauliflower, oil, taco seasoning and chipotle pepper to a baking sheet and toss to coat. Spread an even layer and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Toss and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the cauliflower has a nice char.

Heat some oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add bell pepper, jalapeño, onion, garlic, taco seasoning and cumin to the pot. Stir to combine and cook down for 3-5 minutes, or until the veggies start to get tender.

Pour in enchilada sauce, broth & black beans and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until the cauliflower is done.

Notes

  • I made my tortilla chip strips in the air fryer. To make them, cut corn tortillas into strips, layer them in the air fryer basket, spray with oil and cook at 370 for 8-10 minutes, or until crispy – flipping every few minutes. Remove from the air fryer and sprinkle with salt.
