This soup came into existence for two reasons.

I had carrots.

and I had cauliflower.

An easy way to use up veggies is to turn them into a soup!

I've never roasted my vegetables before blending it into a soup, so I wanted to try it.

Somehow though, all my soups are orange. What can I say, I like orange foods – butternut squash, sweet potato, carrots.

Sometimes I'm surprised I don't turn orange myself.

This soup is 5 main ingredients. I define a main ingredients something that's not spices, olive oil, or water. So we've got cauliflower, carrots, garlic, onion, and vegetable broth. Basically I learned you can make any kind of soup with your choice of veggie(s), + onion and broth. Easy peasy.

Trader Joe's got me again with the ready-made riced cauliflower, but you can use cauliflower florets too. Multicolored carrots are my jam but use whatever you've got. Make sure to peel them if they're not organic.

Drizzle with olive oil and roast them up. I forgot to add the onion before roasting for these pictures, so you can totally add it afterwards to the stockpot instead if you do that too. But roasting everything (garlic + onion with the veggies) is the goal.

Then the roasted veggies just go in a stockpot with the liquids. I used an entire container of (surprise, Trader Joe's) organic vegetable broth, which is 4 cups. And about 2 cups water. Bring to a quick low boil for a few minutes, then turn the heat off or on low so you can blend.

Use an immersion blender until everything is all blended. Then you can decide if you want to add more water or not.

It's rare I can resist adding cheese of some kind, so I sprinkled a little parmesan on my first serving. But without it, it's still delicious (and vegan)!
