Creamy Easy Roasted Cauliflower & Garlic Soup

Creamy Easy Roasted Cauliflower & Garlic Soup

This roasted cauliflower garlic soup is super easy and can be done in stages, which is very helpful if you are tight on time. As I’ve said in prior posts, I typically do all of my meal prepping on weekends as my weekdays can be long and I usually just don’t have the time for dinners that require long prep or cook time, unless I’ve done all the prep ahead. For this soup, the vegetables can be roasted ahead of time, and simply blended after.

The cannelloni beans add protein to make this a complete meal. Eating mainly plants, I am always looking for ways to add beans, tofu, nuts, seeds wherever possible to increase that nutrition level.
