Roasted Root Vegetable Soup #SoupLove

I love the winter months when you can just toss a bunch of ingredients into a pot and it turns into an instant meal.  That is what is so fantastic about soup, you can put anything in it.  Pureed soups are especially good as they can hide ingredients from those finicky eaters.  Packed with nutrition, and filling, soup is the way to go this winter.

In this recipe, I decided to combine soup with an all-time favorite for me, roasted vegetables.  You could even use leftover roasted vegetables in this recipe.
