Roasted Cauliflower and Leek soup

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve kind of gone on a recipe binge lately. Cauliflower was on sale this week, so I bought two so I could make some delicious recipes. This recipe looked yummy and something I could make.
Good thing I looked at this recipe in the morning, because I noticed that I was supposed to soak the cashews overnight. Oops. I soaked them the whole day, and I think that was fine.

I cut up the cauliflower and leeks with the garlic to roast. This is what it look like after 26 minutes in the oven

All that was left after roasting was to throw the ingredients into a blender and to warm the soup in a pot. The recipe recommends a specific kind of blender to make the soup smooth. I have a ninja blender that is new and is great! That being said, I couldn’t get the soup smooth.

After I put the soup into the pot, I used an immersion blender to try to get it smooth. Unfortunately, I could not get this soup as smooth as I would have liked. Also, I did not put the vinegar in at the end, as I did not have it.
I think I should have added a bit more of the red pepper flakes to pump up the flavor a bit. It was a decent soup, although not my favorite.
