Vegan Recipe: Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Hey Folks,

With my new camera lens, and photography school, I am really trying to step my photography game up lately. Soup is my achilles heel though! I love soup, but it is really hard to take a good picture of soup. This vegan roasted cauliflower soup is super tasty, however, and I wanted to share this easy recipe with you.

Vegan Roasted Cauliflower Soup

I found this recipe over at Avocado pesto. That recipe includes celery which I loathe, so I took it out of the recipe. The soup is creamy and gets better when you need to reheat on the stove. I would recommend to stay away from microwaving your left overs whenever possible. I actually survived without a microwave for many years, before I moved into a place with a built in model.
