Slow cooker soups are my go-to winter dinner recipes. They are so easy to make and are ready to eat by the time I get home from work. This soup combines creamy cauliflower and lots of roasted red bell peppers.

We kept this soup vegetarian friendly, but feel free to switch it up by using chicken stock instead of vegetable stock or even topping the soup with grated Parmesan cheese.
