The word soup has come down to us from the Latin “suppa” which was a piece of bread soaked in broth. A warm bowl of soup can hit the spot on a cold day. It can also be a healthy way to start off a meal because it tends to be high in vegetables, filling and low in energy density. Roasting the cauliflower deepens the flavor and softens the texture. It is so healthy and everybody should try and incorporate more into diet.
According to study mostly Americans don’t get the required amount of vegetables. I feel that soup is the ultimate comfort food that should have minimal ingredients and come together quickly. Adding soup to your diet can help you increase your vegetable intake, especially if you choose a vegetarian soup, such as Roasted cauliflower and potato soup. Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup is velvety smooth and decadent-tasting yet low-fat, gluten-free, and dairy-free
