This is SO good! I followed the advice to add Velveeta (about 6 ounces). Since it did that, I used slightly less shredded sharp chedder (about 2 ounces less). I didn't have green onion on hand, so I used yellow onion, and light beer so it wouldn't overwhelm the soup. I salted and peppered the veggies while they sauteed and I forgot to steam the cauliflower separately, but it cooked perfectly during the 20 minute simmer. I didn't want to use 3/4 cup butter, so I used a few tbsps olive oil, and a couple tbsp light butter. I can't believe how good this soup is - the best soup I've had! I will absolutely make this again. Read More

I'm sorry. Way too much beer flavor. I thought the beer would cook off more. Read More

I made this exactly as written only using mild Cheddar rather than sharp and light beer - and was initially very unimpressed. While I loved the chunkiness of the vegetables the broth itself was watery rather than creamy and even had flecks or grains of cheese in it - not pretty. I took a guess on what would correct this and added a good chunk of Velveeta noted for it's smoothness and melting quality. I can't tell you what an incredible difference this made! The soup was totally transformed and became creamy rich and smooth! I was so pleased! Even though to start I really wanted to rate this as three stars the soup ended up being so darn good I didn't want to take the risk of turning anyone off to it. With just this small change of adding Velveeta this became a five star soup! Read More

I really loved this soup! This has to be one of the best soups I've made/eaten - and I don't like beer! I didn't have any califlower but used potatoes adding them with all the other veggies. I added a bit of sour cream in the end and I had less than a bottle of beer to put in it but you could still taste it. We topped it with additional parmesan cheese. Read More

This was very tasty - my new favorite way to eat cauliflower! The recipe called for 3/4 cup of butter. I only used 1/4 cup of butter and it was fine. I also used low-sodium vegetable broth instead of chicken and about 1/2 cup more carrots and celery. Read More

Awesome soup served with chunks of crusty french bread! I used Henry Weinhard's Organic Amber Premium Ale for the beer. The taste was a little too "sophisticated" for my 15 year old though. Read More

Would have been perfect without celery. It just doesn't go well with the taste. Read More
