A nice and simple healthy soup. First the cauliflower is sauteed in butter with potatoes and onions, and then simmered in vegetable stock.

I made this recipe into a "cream of" cauliflower soup by blending it all after the cauliflower was cooked. Soooooo good! Loved it! Very tasty and so easy to make! Thanks for sharing! Read More

I didn't particularly like this one. It was pretty runny (not creamy enough). It was easy to make though. Read More

Very easy to make and excellant results. I put the chunks of cauliflower and potatoes in a blender to make a thicker soup--well worth the effort. Top with crisp bacon and shredded cheese-wonderful!! Read More

Using a reviewer's suggestion I made this a cream of cauliflower soup- pureed cooked vegetables and used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. I reserved some of the cooked cauliflower florets and add them as a garnish at the end Read More

I love this recipe. I decided to use my hand blender to puree about 3/4 of the soup so that it was a lovely light creamy soup with chunks of vegetable. I served it with croutons and everyone loved it. Read More

This recipe was great but I made a few changes. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable. I added a pinch of nutmeg and pureed the soup so it was smooth. Then I threw in some leftover cooked kielbasa which added some flavor. It was very easy! Read More

Excellent soup. My picky non-vegetable eating 6 year old loved it. I pureed the whole soup to make it a creamy soup. This is a keeper. Read More

This was my first experience with vegetable broth and I really liked it! I made this soup with breadsticks for dipping and used plenty of salt and pepper (we like everything well-seasoned) and my husband and I both really enjoyed it. I did thicken with about 2 Tbsp cornstarch mixed in 1/4 cup or so of water adding this mixture with the milk and simmering a few more minutes. Other than that I made no changes and we thought it was a really great soup - creamy and satisfying. Read More

This is the first time that I have made cauliflower soup. It was delicious! For serving I sprinkled the top with toasted sourdough "homestyle" cheese croutons. Everyone raved about this soup. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Very good. I used an immersion blender to make the soup creamier added only enough milk to give it a creamy texture. Only improvement I would make is to use half&half or cream...will try a little cheese in it next time. Read More
