Roasted Cauliflower Curry Soup (SCD Friendly)

I’ve come across many cauliflower soup recipes over the years but never made my ownuntil last month that is.  It’s such a delightful soup with a buttery, delicate flavor.  I kick myself for waiting so long.  This is super spring dish, light yet filling, and would probably taste fantastic cold on those hot summer days. My friend Vicky has a wonderful SCD Lentil Cauliflower soup - I love her addition of lentils – so clever.  
Salud friends.     
Ingredients
-1 yellow onion, chopped
-1 cup carrots, chopped
-1 cup zucchini, chopped
-2 lbs. cauliflower (2 medium heads)
-4 cups filtered water 
-1 can of SCD legal coconut milk 
-2 teaspoons green curry paste (or more to taste) 
-1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 
-1 teaspoon garlic granules (or 2 fresh cloves, minced)
-1 teaspoon salt
-Oil of choice 
How To
Preheat oven to 400
1.  Cut and wash cauliflower.  Toss with a drizzle of oil and garlic granules (or whatever you roast with).  I use garlic granules in place of salt.  Roast cauliflower for 25 minutes, or until slightly browned.  
2.  In a pot, on medium heat, add some oil with onions and salt.  Sauté until slightly wilted.  Add in carrots, zucchini, curry paste, turmeric, garlic grans and sauté for a few minutes.  
3.  Add coconut milk, mix.
4.  Add in roasted cauliflower and water.  
5.  Bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer for about 20 minutes (or until fork tender) then turn off heat and allow to sit for about 10 minutes, then blend with immersion blender (or blender of choice).
6.  Garnish with oil and fresh ground pepper.  

Notes:
*You don’t have to roast the cauliflower.  I’ve made it without roasting, but the roasting adds so much flavor.  So if using raw cauliflower, simmer for about 40 minutes, or until fork tender. Rest, then blend.
