Roasted Cauliflower Cheese Soup

Joy Hall


Living on a farm provides us with the opportunity to enjoy vegetables. This soup is a very hearty yet light meal for a meatless Monday or anytime. I make it often in the winter ever since the children were little and loved it. It is excellent with sharp cheddar or even mild mozzarella. Definitely a tasty lunch or supper.

Remove all from oven and cool enough to rough chop cauliflower and garlic. Reserve ~1 cup of cauliflower.
