Soups

Roasted Red Pepper & Cauliflower

There are TONS of pre-made soups available at the market today. Every time I see these soups I always think, “I can make that!” So I decided to give it a whirl and this was the outcome. The best part of making your own soup is that you know exactly what is in it. No preservatives and no ingredients you can’t pronounce!
