A rainbow of greens, roasted till candy, tender and just a bit bit charred. Mix them along with some inventory and creamy-yet-sharp parmesan and also you’ve received the proper lunch to heat you up from the within — the roasted vegetable and parmesan soup.
I really like making straightforward meals like this in winter. There’s one thing about dishing up ladles of steaming sizzling soup into ready bowls. Dunking a pleasant wedge of bread in there, figuring out you’re consuming one thing nutritious, selfmade and completely scrumptious.
