I love the flavors in Thai foods and curry's, and I'm a huge fan of bisque soups, so when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it.
1/3 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup water
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 large head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 14-oz can light coconut milk
2 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp evaporated cane sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp Salt
Put the cashews in a blender and blend until finely ground. Add ¾ cup water and blend for 2 minutes.
Pour the cashew mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl, pressing on the solids with the back of a spoon. Discard the solids.
Add the cauliflower, coconut milk, strained cashew milk, curry powder, turmeric, cumin, sugar, cinnamon, and salt as needed. Add enough water to cover.
Bring to a low boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 10 minutes.
Ladle into bowls and garnish with cilantro before serving.
To make this soup PALEO, exclude adding the salt

I cooked up Salmon and served it together with this soup. It was a tasty little combo.
