Curried Cauliflower and Turmeric Soup Recipe

Curried Cauliflower and Turmeric Soup Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

How are you all? 
This year, winters have set in earlier than usual . It means three things - lots and lots of warm clothes and food,  lesser day light  and adjusting to the new work schedule. To be frank, almost all my time is divided between regular household chores and cooking.  In the remaining time that I get, I simply dream. No, really, I mean it and I am trying my best to focus, to motivate myself to share the recipes that I create and cook. 

Will you believe me if I told you that this is the third time I am sitting down to share this particular recipe alone and I just hope I will successfully share it with you 😄.

Cauliflowers that I get during winter months taste the best. I use them almost everyday in my cooking. I had made this roasted cauliflower soup sometime back and it was so tasty.

Here is the simple yet delicious Curried Cauliflower Soup Recipe , that is so comforting and delicious. 

The roasted onions, garlic and cauliflower gives this soup great flavour.  A must try when the best tasting cauliflowers are in season.
