carrot and cauliflower soup title

this soup is so thick and creamy… almost meaty in texture.  adding the element of both fresh and sun-dried tomatoes gives a salty, almost briny- flavor, and smoky depth.

you can steam the vegetables first, if you like, but roasting them adds another great layer of flavor.  if you like, you can double the vegetables for roasting and save some for another night.  that’s what i did – i doubled and roasted the cauliflower/onion combination, then froze half for a second batch!

    Please – How many is a pint of cherry tomatoes?

    Comment – I have never understood why recipes contain so many variations of measurements! Is it to look clever? My kitchen scales unfortunately don’t have pints as a measurement. Simplicity would be numbers of tomatoes or better still weight because then the size wouldn’t matter. Pounds / Ounces or Kilos / Grams would be the easiest to wok with..

      Thank you for your comment, Lance! In the US, cherry tomatoes are most commonly sold in pint-baskets or “by the pint.” A quick Google search tells me this is approximately 2 cups, or between 10 and 16 ounces. Best of luck, and let me know if you like the recipe!
