Cold weather calls for soups, and this simple, hearty, smokey soup does just the trick: root vegetables get simmered and pureed with an intoxicating blend of savory spices and then beefed up with chunks of smoked sausage and curly green kale. The perfect meal after a long day full of winter chores, hopefully next to a fireplace.
The bright yellow color, complex flavor and smooth texture will have your diners guessing "what's in this soup!?" It's entirely vegetarian--roasted veggies, soaked sunflower seeds and spices--and can be made vegan with a sub for the garnish of cream at the end. Serve with some sliced cherry tomatoes and extra sunflower seeds on top.
