Simple & Delicious Cauliflower Tomato Soup

From Wai Lana’s Favorite Soups: Cauliflower Tomato Soup with Fresh Paneer

Making paneer, or fresh cheese, is a ritual I’ve grown to love. It’s both relaxing and rewarding to stir the milk and watch the curd magically separate from the whey. When you taste it pan-fried to perfection and added to this sumptuous curried cauliflower soup, you’ll definitely agree it’s worth a little patience! This soup itself is very straightforward and simple to make. It goes well with basmati rice and samosas or pakoras.

Soup of the Week: Jade Curry

Spicy and flavorful, this versatile soup can be made with different vegetables, depending on what’s available. I originally made it with green papaya, which grows right in our backyard in Hawaii. When I venture into colder climates, however, green papaya is not always a common find, so I’ll use potato or even Jerusalem artichoke instead. Enzyme-rich green papaya is simply unripe regular papaya. It has a mild and pleasant peppery flavor. If you find it in Chinatown, give it a try.
