Lovely thick soup, wonderful flavours. I also added a couple of cloves of garlic into the baking tray during the roasting process and it tasted lovely. Definitely going to make this again! Great vegan recipe :)

The reason this recipe calls for roasting the veg is for a just tastes so much better! Roasting in oil adds so much to the flavour. I would recommend trying it rather than just simmering the veg on the hob as it is 'easier'. It really isn't..after all, you just chuck everything in a big roasting pan, bung it in the oven instead of on the hob.

I have made this soup lots of time with and without Cumin, I do it on the hob, turning the veg in a little flora before adding the stock, great results everything :)

Good for using up veg. I will also do it next time on the hob unless already using oven dicing potato smaller to cook quicker. Nice thick soup, not being veggie I used half veg stock and half chicken stock. Well received.
