Roasted Red Pepper and Cauliflower Soup


Here’s another creamy soup to warm you up on those cold days. This recipe is entirely made of vegetables! A great way to get some veggies into your day.



Cut one large red pepper into quarters, removing the stems and seeds. Place pieces skin side up on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. 


Broil in the oven for 10 minutes or until the skins have blackened. 


Remove the peppers from the oven and transfer into a bag (Ziploc or brown paper bag) with tongs.  Seal the bag and let the peppers steam for around 10 minutes. 


Once the peppers are done steaming, remove from bag and peel off the skins.  Set aside.
