Method of Preparation
In a heavy 4 to 6 qt/L saucepan add oil, water, potato, cauliflower and onion. On high heat, bring water to a boil, cover pan and reduce heat to low. Simmer about 10 minutes.
Stir in garlic, ginger and spices. Cook 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Add broth and salt (start with 1/2 teaspoon). Cover the pan, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 20 minutes or until vegetables are very soft.
For creamy soup, use an immersion blender or blender to puree. When using a blender, puree about 2 cups at a time holding the lid down with a cloth or gloved hand to prevent splattering.
Stir in the yogurt. Add salt if desired and serve.
