CURRIED CAULIFLOWER RED PEPPER SOUP

It’s said only the pure at heart can make good soup and this my curried cauliflower red pepper soup certainly is the way to my heart.

Healthy,fragrant and delicious,this soup is completely vegan without missing out on the creamy texture we all love in hearty soups.

Cauliflower has tons of health benefits most notably being an anti inflammatory,good for our brain,heart and its cancer fighting capabilities.All said,cauliflower isn’t the best tasting vegetable out there and it takes lots of convincing to push it down my throat.

Roast cauliflower alongside onions,add in roasted red bell peppers with a blend of spices and you have a delicious warm fragrant soup that you can’t have enough of.

Red bell pepper adds in flavor and much needed sweetness and body to the soup complementing the garlicky flavors

This is a simple recipe to bring together and is a good way to get the kids to eat their cauliflower.This is perfect with the cold,and is my go to soup when I need something warm and comforting
