Roasting vegetables is a great way to bring out their natural sweetness. Try this Roaste Cauliflower & Fennel Soup for dinner!

~by Hannah Gilbert, APD

 

It’s a cooler Spring Sunday day here in Sydney, Australia. Much like the weather I am sure you, my northern hemisphere friends are experiencing as the brisk Autumn temperature shows its true face. What better way to warm up and wind down for the work week ahead than with a bowl of wholesome soup. Not just any soup might I add, it’s roasted cauliflower all glammed up with fennel and squeeze of lemon. Upon roasting, the cauliflower caramelises into greatness and the licorice like fennel sweetens so perfectly. It’s everything a soup should be – thick, velvety, creamy, comforting and flavorsome. It’s also very simple and can be prepared in a flash – roast said ingredients, simmer with stock, blend and serve  steaming and garnished with a crack of pepper, lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil with crusty grainy sourdough or rye.
