spicy soup

my mom is the queen of soups. i stole this recipe from her… a common theme. this one is a bit spicy, but you can ease up on the cayenne if you want to tone it down a bit. it is hearty and filling!

the four spices give this soup a great color and the potatoes and cauliflower give it a great, creamy texture.

this soup is a great starter or a a main course served with bread.

honestly, i made this because i just got an immersion blender and wanted to test it out! i made the full amount below and had leftovers for days (cooking for one has its perks). i froze the rest to keep for later!
