Roasted Cauliflower French Onion Soup

Roasted Cauliflower French Onion Soup

Easter was almost a month ago now and I’m just starting to post all my Easter day recipes….Needless to say I’m behind. I apologize for my lack of blogging activity. I’ve gone on hiatus for reasons being of work, puppy, boyfriend, more work and more work. I hope you understand.

But we’re all well and I hope you’re all hungry. I know I always am!

This Easter was hard for a couple reasons; it was the first Easter spent away from family and we made it a “paleo” Easter….or at least we tried.

So aside from being paleo friendly, this soup is absolutely savory and delicious and you won’t miss the cream or the carbs in it….I swear….Yes I topped this soup with creme fraiche but it was too good not to do it. Like I said it was a good attempt at paleo and we really did try to be good.

I don’t know how you do diets in your home but my goes a little bit like this…..”All in moderation, including moderation.” We’re really not good at diets at all. I’m okay with this. It’s not my strong suit.

Enough diet talk. More Roasted Cauliflower French Onion Soup talk.
