Cauliflower, Potatoes and Rosemary

It is getting chillier here now and it has triggered off my passion for soups. Why is it that making soup gives such satisfaction? When I think soup, I get this fairytale vision of a huge iron pot hanging over a fire, lovingly stirred by a woman whose face is lit by the burning fire. A generous soup, that has been simmering for hours and filled with vegetables and maybe a bone here and there. It is such a romanticized view on soup making but I leave it like that. My own soup making is nothing near that vision but the love is there. Unfortunately my own family isn’t really a soup family but I do impose soups on them now and then, it is such a great way to make children eat vegetables without knowing that it is packed with all the green stuff they usually refuse to even consider. Deceit can be useful at times but only if it is honest deceit, never hurt them to eat things they have mental hangups about as long as they didn’t know they did it. All for the good cause!
This is a good soup, I love cauliflower so this soup is only a bonus for me, and is the perfect soup for cauliflower haters as I bet they couldn’t ever guess that they are eating it! Not only that, just a few ingredients are used but the fact that they are roasted in the oven before being made into a soup manage to pack it with flavours without much help.
