Corn & Cauliflower Soup

Corn & Cauliflower Soup

Winter is coming, which means all the farmers markets are selling the last of their corn for the season. I’ve been trying to use as much fresh corn as I can these days, like this soup, which is perfect for a weekday dinner on a crisp cool evening. Baking the corn and cauliflower with balsamic vinegar really brings out the sweetness in the corn and the nuttiness in the cauliflower, and sweetness and nuttiness are the flavors we all crave in the cooler months!
