Roaster Cauliflower and Aged White Cheddar Soup

My afternoon post today is a wonderful looking soup from Closet Cooking. This guy is from Ontario, Canada so we can both probably relate to some cold winter nights. This soup would be perfect for one of those night here in Wyoming, but I am certainly not going to wait for a cold night to eat it. Great recipe, thanks Kevin!
