Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Cauliflower Soup is rich and creamy without the dairy or the gluten! This roasted vegetable soup is easy to make and could be the perfect addition to any weeknight dinner. Warm up this fall with soup!
Soup, my friends.
Warm and velvety, smooth and creamy Roasted Red Pepper and Cauliflower Soup that is not only vegan and vegetarian friendly but gluten free too.
A soup that is easy to make and that everyone will LOVE!
A soup that makes rainy, cold and gloomy fall days not all that bad after a bowl or two.
I think this Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Cauliflower Soup is my new favourite.
I love soup.
With all it’s warmth and deliciousness. I could seriously eat soup any time of the year but soup is just way too good during the fall and winter. I mean there is nothing quite like making it through a particularly chilly day to come home to a big warm bowl of soup.
Not to mention, soup can also be super nutritious packed with tons of veggies, healthy fats and proteins. It can be made vegan or gluten free or dairy or totally indulgent. It can be silky smooth or left with a ton of different texture and flavours. Soup is such a versatile and wonderful thing!
I also love soup because it’s great for sharing. Going to a dinner party and need something that’s easy to make and you know everyone will love? Soup. Having some friends over for an impromptu lunch and you need something delicious? Soup. Getting together for a Girls’ night and you need something that can be enjoyed by all? Soup.
In fact, the last time Dietetic Directions, Chelsea’s Healthy Kitchen and I got together we totally made this soup. We also made a crazy delicious Butternut Squash Carbonara with Kale and had this soup along side of all that carb-y goodness. It was a good night.
MORE ABOUT THIS ROASTED RED PEPPER CAULIFLOWER SOUP RECIPE…
This soup was inspired from a couple different sources. The first being Pinterest (Obviously. Because who doesn’t scroll through their Pinterest feed and instantly want to make a million different things all at once?). I saw this soup in my feed and knew I just had to make it. And the second being one of my own recipes, my Creamy Cauliflower Soup. I had forgotten how much I absolutely love this creamy soup recipe. It’s such a crowd pleaser and so, so, so easy to make too. I knew taking the two ideas and merging them together would result in something really great.
The roasted red pepper flavour of this soup is insane! Those freshly roasted red peppers really shine here and, I mean, they are just so good. This soup is so very peppery but in a good way. (And if you love roasted red peppers, you have to check out this and this!)
And then there’s the cauliflower, onions and garlic. Cauliflower makes the most delicious base for creamy-like soups without any of the cream. You still get the rich and full flavour and texture and all from the cauliflower!
And this soup really isn’t anything without the roasted onions and garlic. Trust me. The first time I made this myself I forgot the onions AND the garlic. I know. It was a disaster. Don’t forget the onions or the garlic.
I love how easy this soup truly is. All the vegetables get roasted in the oven together and then they are get pureed in your high-speed blender or with a hand blender until beyond silky smooth. That’s right – no lumps in this soup.
This roasted red pepper and cauliflower soup is very simple – a little bit herby, a little bit sweet and just a teeny bit spicy – with a little thyme, maple syrup, salt, pepper and just a pinch of heat, if you want. Herbs and roasted red peppers are a delicious combination and I just love that little extra something that the sweet maple syrup and red pepper flakes give this soup.
Grab those spoons, friends.
