Tasty Delights-- Roasted Cauliflower Sweet Potato Soup

Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters is all about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

Each Tuesday I'll share my delights or my disasters.  Yall feel free to join in and create your own posts, share your favorite recipes, what have you. 

I saw this one the other day on Pinterest. 5 ingredients. Supposed to be super easy and delicious--at least from all the comments that's what I was guessing. It really was super easy. But the tasty part. Not so much in original form so had to supe it up a bit and it turned out pretty good. I mean. For orange soup. lol

Easy ingredients.

Okay so I mentioned not so tasty. Yeah with the original 5 ingredients. It wasn't so great. Pretty dag bland.
It called for an optional couple sprinkles of garam masala which I didn't have so I just raided my spice rack and added and tasted until it worked for me. Though damn the cumin was strong. Whew. 
So play around with this one and see what works for you.

Chop up and roast cauliflower until tender and lightly browned.

While cauliflower is roasting chop up sweet potato, garlic and onion then boil in veggie broth. 
The original recipe called for filtered water but with the blandness I really think veggie broth would be better. I ended up adding a veggie broth cube in the end.

Very carefully blend the sweet potatoes until very smooth. 
Be careful on this step to avoid splashing.

And...soup. It was pretty freaking orange but you know I kinda liked it. And omg it smelled so good!. 

I'll be making this again at some point with some changes. Cooking in broth instead of water, adding in spices. I think I'll saute the onions/garlic in butter before pureeing as well. Maybe a splash of heavy cream in the end too. And not pureeing quite as much of the cauliflower.

What's *YOUR* favorite soup?
