Roasted Cauilflower and Cashew Soup

So it is officially Fall after this week of chilly weather and what better way to welcome the cooler temperatures then some soup to warm you up! I found this recipe in this months issue of Active magazine.  The cashew milk makes the soup deliciously creamy and after having two bowls worth I can honestly say that  its one of my new favourite recipes !
