Curried Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup

It’s strangely soothing to be warm, bundled up & cosy against a glowing fireplace (or space heater) against the cold, snowy outdoors.

What truly hits the Mojo spot when you’re curled up like this, are:

A good cuddling partner (hello, arms of steel… and equally comfy pudgy tummies!)
An awesome book or TV show you’re hooked on
A scrumptious, warm, savory & sweet thing to eat… like this….

I can get you the hook up to Option 3, with this Curried Sweet Potato Cauliflower soup. This delicious soup gets you feeling all kinds of warm & fuzzy when it’s cold & wintery outside. Bold on flavor & creamy, it’s got roasted cauliflower & sweet potato with Thai spices like lemongrass, galangal, ginger & a dash of maple syrup. This is the sweet, spicy & tangy concoction that makes you feel like your soul just got wrapped in a gigantic flannel blanket. Yes, really! Now that’s Winter Mojo! You’re welcome  🙂
