Creamy Roasted Vegetable Chowder

Roasting the veggies before adding them to the soup is the key to adding a ton more flavor to this amazing tasting soup.  Some coconut milk adds creaminess but still keeps the overall taste light.

Toss the veggies onto a baking sheet and toss with oil and a bit of salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes, then place under broiler for 5-10 minutes or until the take on a nice golden color.

Before adding the roasted veggies into the pot, mash the roasted garlic up with a fork until smooth then stir into the soup.

If you add the kale too soon it will lose its vibrant green color and turn brownish-green. So wait until the last 5 minutes then stir it in.
