Roasted Vegetable Soup

roasted_vegetable_soup

This creamy roasted vegetable soup is perfect in the cooler months of the year. Sweet potato, carrots and parsnips are seasoned with paprika and cayenne pepper and then roasted until tender and caramelised. They are then pureed and simmered with homemade vegetable stock to develop the flavour.

Soup is one of my favourite comfort foods and healthy comfort food is even better. It soothes and nourishes both my body and soul. The homemade garlic croutons top it off perfectly.
