Curried Cauliflower Soup

I found this recipe on Williams and Sonoma website (my favorite store). It was great! I skipped some of the steps, like toasting the spices and adding the garnish. It was great all the same. The video on the website is quick and simple. I'm really going to be looking there for inspiration. Here's the ingredient list so you could get an idea of how great it is but, the website is really well done. Check it out!

-2 heads cauliflower, cut into florets (about 10 cups)
-1 onion, diced (about 1 cup)
-½ leek, white and light green parts only, diced (about ¾ cup)
-2 large carrots, diced (about 1 cup)
-¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
-½ teaspoon coriander seeds
-½ teaspoon cumin seeds
-½ bunch cilantro, chopped (about 2 cups)
-¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
-½ teaspoon mild curry powder
-4 garlic cloves, minced
-8 cups vegetable stock
-¾ cup plain yogurt
-2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
-Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
