Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Have you tried roasting cauliflower before?  It takes this highly nutritious vegetable to a whole new flavour level and makes a delicious change to simply steaming or boiling it.

Roasted Cauliflower

The concentrated roasted flavours are perfect in this rich, creamy soup. Don’t be put off by the cooking time; it’s incredibly simple to make and you don’t need to be in the kitchen for very long at all.  And it’s very easy to turn this into a vegan recipe by swapping out the milk and replacing it with a non-dairy version such as almond or oat milk.

Looks yummy and I think would also work nicely with roasted parsnips. Great to mention the vegan version too. Another non dairy milk which is lovely is http://www.kokodairyfree.com/ and is good because the fat in it is 60% Medium Chain Triglycerides.
