Even though creamy green curry cauliflower soup is far from a breakfast food, seeing any kind of food pretty much makes me ravenous these days.

It tends to happen when you’re pregnant.

Yes, once again pregnancy has caused a one trimester-long hiatus from all things enjoyable in life—including vegetables. But now that I’m making my way back to the land of the vegetable-eating living, it’s time to put away the bagels and toaster. This mama is craving healthy food once again.

Now if only I had the energy to cook it.

Luckily for me, second trimester energy is (supposedly) right around the corner. And I’m stocked up with some quick and easy recipes, like this yummy cauliflower soup!

One pot recipes are basically the key to a happy life. Easy to make, and fewer hand-wash only pots and pans to clean.

Creamy green curry cauliflower soup grocery list

There are five main ingredients you’ll need to pick up from the store that you may not have at home.

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • leaks
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • green curry paste
  • garlic salt

I added garlic salt, but admittedly I’d be a little disappointed if this wasn’t a staple in your pantry. The only other ingredients you’ll need are water, salt and pepper!

You’re also going to need a blender, or a handheld immersion blender for this recipe. I used this immersion blender, but either one will work just fine!

For those of you who remember, I didn’t exactly enjoy pregnancy the first time around. This time is really no different. Although I’m trying to be a little more positive about all my life disruptions, I’m really just looking towards early September when Brooklyn’s baby sister will be here. (Yes, two girls!) And I can celebrate the birth of our (last) child with champagne.

TBD on how many pregnancy updates I’ll have here, but now that we’re ‘in the clear’ I’ll probably open up more on pregnant life with a toddler on Instagram!

Alright. Now that we’ve covered the important things—food and baby, not sure which order those should be in—let’s eat.
