Easy Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup

I hate cooking meals.  I would rather bake something sweet.  But I came across this easy recipe that even I could make.  It didn’t require making a huge mess or a lot of ingredients.  It is gluten free and vegetarian.  If you like squash soup you will probably like this one too.  It has the same consistency as mashed cauliflower.

 

Ingredients

3 medium sized sweet potatoes

1 head cauliflower

1 onion

2 cloves of garlic

7 cups of water

Cut the cauliflower into smallish pieces, drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven at 400 for 20 – 30 minutes.  Roast until light brown and but not mushy.

Chop the sweet potatoes, onion and garlic and put in water to soften.  When the cauliflower is done put this in the veggie mixture.  Once the potatoes are soften allow to cool before you blend.  I took mine off the burner and went for a walk.  Once I returned I took the hand blender to it and blended it to a lumpy texture.   Reheat on the stove until hot.  Season with salt and pepper.

My husband and I had enough for 2 full meals each.  We at it again the next day, but we added some diced ham to it.  We are by no means vegetarians and we had ham left over in the fridge.  It did add a little salt to it and it tasted like scalloped potatoes.   It was yummy and easy.
