Roasted Cauliflower and Cheese Soup
I was reading Erin's blog
this morning and saw those glorious pics. for creamy cauliflower soup.  Since it's meatless Monday today, I figured it would be a good idea as part of tonight's dinner.  I didn't actually follow the recipe, just sort of did what I thought sounded good (in my head) as I usually do.  
Here's what I did...

 I roasted 1 head of cauliflower (drizzled with melted coconut oil) on a baking sheet lined with parchment for 45 minutes at 400F.

 Meanwhile, I sautéed a chopped Vidalia onion in coconut oil until softened

 I added about 4 cups of broth and 4 roughly chopped garlic cloves and simmered for a few minutes

 Into my Vitamix blender, I added the roasted cauliflower, some roughly chopped extra-aged cheddar (about 100g) and 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard

 I poured the broth, onions and garlic into the Vitamix

 And I added a teaspoon of cayenne

Blended it all up and voila!
