broccoli cauliflower soup

Recipe by

Soup weather is here and we could not be happier about the soup but maybe not about the weather. This scrumptious Roasted Broccoli Cauliflower Soup takes this recipe to a whole new level by first roasting the vegetables. This technique helps lend a little bit of smoky flavor to this soup along with a touch of crispy edges from the roasted vegetables. You can eat this soup nice and chunky like I did or puree whatever portion you desire. Your kitchen is your playground so make it to suit you.
