Spicy Roasted Cauliflower and Corn Soup

Another cauliflower recipe…We have almost got through all of them. Only 1/2 to go now. Marco hasn’t been too keen on having more cauliflower meals, but this is what he will be coming home too again tonight. I made a Roasted Cauliflower & Garlic Soup a while ago and I was really craving it again. This soup is a bit different as it has the sweetness of the corn and the heat of the cayenne pepper. I also got to try out my vitamix as a soup blender. The texture was so smooth and luscious. No more lumpy soups 🙂

    • Thanks Ally! I still love my Hurom but I haven’t been using it everyday anymore since its been so cold. I did try make them for work but it was freezing me in from the inside. I still use it on the weekends though. Can’t wait till it warm! I do recommend this one, it produces a lot more juice then a masticating one. I first saw them on Food Matters website and it gives a guide on juicers as well. http://www.foodmatters.tv/juicer-buying-guide

  1. I think this is a recipe that is simple but so full of flavour. This is the kind of cooking that always inspire me. Inexpensive ingredients cooked with love and a creative recipe 🙂 I need to make this!
