Roasted Cauliflower White Cheddar Soup

Roasted Cauliflower White Cheddar SoupIf there’s a soup that you must try this Fall, please let this be it! This soup is equally as delicious, if not better, than broccoli cheese soup. I wouldn’t have thought it would be as good because cauliflower seems quite bland, but when you roast it in a blazing hot oven, it takes it to a whole new level. It seems to caramelize on the edges and bring a light sweetness to the soup. It was hard for me not to eat all of the roasted cauliflower before adding it to the soup, I love the stuff!
