When cooking vegetable soups and stews, spices are a great way to elevate the delicious natural flavor of the vegetables to the next level. If you are hesitant stepping up your spice game, you can always purchase some natural spice mixes. Spicing for this Cauliflower Potato Soup is no exception.
Taco or fajita seasoning is a great example of a blend that can be used. However, store-bought blends may be tasty but often include extra sodium that is best avoided. Make a note of the popular spice combinations and put them together yourself at home. You can create blends you love and keep them in an old spice jar or small mason jar for ready use.
To achieve an even deeper flavor with this recipe, you can first roast the veggies with olive oil and spices in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes just to get the embed the flavor into the vegetables before slow cooking into your soup. This step isn’t necessary, and the soup will still be very flavorful if you decide to add everything into the slow cooker and cook in one step.
