The roasting of Cauliflower produces a lovely smokey flavor, especially when you leave chunks of cauliflower in the soup. When I roasted all the vegetables then combined them in one baking dish in preparation to blend, I realized just how yummy this was all on its own. I was in two minds to leave it as is, as it was DELICIOUS! But I needed soup for the next few days and didn’t want to make another batch. So I kept some on the side. I will definitely be making this dish again. Highly recommend this lovely combination of soft, smokey cauliflower with soft juicy tomatoes and leeks cooked slowly until they melt in your mouth.
