Cauliflower Soup

    35 mins

    Here's my fave creamy veggie soup for a cold winter night. The thickness of the soup is determined by the ratio of cauliflower to water. Because cauliflowers are all different sizes, add stock or milk if the soup is too thick.

    Yum! I used less water and pureed the carrots along with the cauliflower, and it couldn't be any better.  -  04 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Damn good! As an avid cooker I can highly recommend this to anybody! What I changed a bit: I used good chicken stock (Knorr brand is the best!) instead of water and I also added Cayenne pepper like some other reviewer suggested - only if you like spicy. A permanent recipe in my collection. You can serve this with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and a drop of half-and half for presentation.  -  27 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good recipe...milk can be added instead or in addition to water.(also, no need to boil carrots separatly)  -  10 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
