Directions

Combine the cauliflower, 1 1/4 cups of the vegetable broth, 1/2 cup water, the lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of the sea salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, cover and simmer until very tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the carrot, celery, onion and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and cook until the vegetables are soft, about 15 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until the vegetables are beginning to brown, an additional five minutes. Stir in the herbes de provence, granulated onion and tarragon and cook a few minutes longer. Add the sauteed vegetables to the cauliflower mixture and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.

Combine the sunflower seeds, the remaining 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth and 1/2 cup water in a blender. Puree until very smooth. Working in batches if necessary, add the contents of the saucepan to the blender and puree until smooth and creamy. Pour the finished soup into bowls and garnish with a sprinkling of pepitas and a drizzle of pumpkin seed oil.

    I loved this soup! I didn't have everything called for in the recipe, such as vegetable broth, and civilization is pretty far away, so I adapted and used what I had, but it had the spirit of the bisque and was delicious and satisfying.

    I made this and the whole family loved it. Also, I made it right before having an ACL replacement surgery so I'd have something to eat that would give me another layer of anti-inflamtory in my body. Can't verify that it had any real impact, but my doctor said my body was doing well with swelling, less than most he saw at that point. What I can verify is that it was good eats.
