I roast to you!

It’s Soup Saturday in my house. If you’re looking for something different, but not too adventurous, you need to try this soup. It’s so easy and delicious. You don’t even need to put any dairy in this soup. The roasted parsnips add a sweetness, and the cumin adds some spice. Don’t tell anyone there is cauliflower in it. They will never guess! Enjoy!

In case you hadn’t noticed, I make a lot of soup.  Soup is good. Most of my soups are tomato based and often include lentils, spinach, different spices and some kind of sausage. I’ve been looking to make something different and healthier. I have read various recipes that used roasted cauliflower, but they relied on too many spices. I found one recipe that used roasted cauliflower and roasted parsnips. Pure magic. I adapted the recipe so that the sweetness of the parsnips would be the dominant flavor. Instead of roasting the spices with the vegetables, I added them later into the chicken stock. Instead of roasting the onions, I sautéed them in olive oil. My new friend, the Immersion Blender, made sure the soup was creamy.
