Caramelized Root Vegetable Soup | Vegan

Beat the cold and the flu season with this delicious Caramelized Root Vegetable Soup! I recently found out that roots are some of the most nutrient-dense vegetables as they absorb a lot of nutrients from the soil while they grow underground. Make sure to dice your vegetables roughly the same size so they cook at the same pace and you’re all set!
