Roasted Cauliflower Celeriac Soup

Soups

Today is the last day of a new year purification cleanse and to motivate me to keep going I made this soup today.  The cleanse helped me to rediscover some tastes and textures and aromas I love.

This hearty flavorful soup is a modification of a puree I make often. I love using celeriac root for it’s distinctive flavor.  This soup offers layers of flavors with the leeks, roasted cauliflower, celeriac root and ginger.

I hope you enjoy!

This soup is super easy to make. I love ginger, so I add a heaping tablespoon, but you can do less. I keep minced ginger in a jar in my refrigerator to make this easier. (I love the brand Ginger People, which you can get here). You could also use fresh turmeric but that can be hard to find. Add the spice to release their flavors after the leeks are well softened, and take a moment to enjoy the aroma. If you have fresh celery leaves you can use those as a garnish. I just used what i had - some delish radishes, which add a crispy texture and a bitter accent. And some pea sprouts.
