This month is soup month and we are doing our part to bring you some recipes that are sure to fill your tummy without emptying your wallet. Broccoli and cauliflower are in season right now and often on sale. Lucky for us, they also make a wonderful hearty winter soup. Nothing can compare to soup. There is something so comforting about a bowl of soup on a chilly afternoon. I especially like to have it in a deep bowl that I can use to warm my hands.
There are commercially made soups that I enjoy occasionally, but I prefer homemade soups. It is not tricky, takes little actual involvement, and gives you control over the ingredients. Often times, canned soups have a taste that you can’t quite identify. That is the taste of ‘I was made in a big factory and have been sitting on a shelf for who knows how long’. Fresh soup will NEVER have that taste.
Today’s soup is Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower. It appears to be a cream based soup, but there is actually not much dairy involved. The vegetables make this soup thick and hearty. We have tried to keep the ingredient list short, but added a few spices and herbs to bring out the flavor.
