First, I have to say that I like how this soup breaks down nutritionally (at least for those not following a low carb diet). As I suspected, the soup turned orange from the carrot (almost looks like butternut squash), but it adds great flavor. Cauliflower doesn't really have a lot of flavor, but this soup is anything but bland. I used my immersion blender, and the soup was very thick, so I did have to thin out with a little chicken broth and water. You'll have to adjust the consistency to your preference which is certainly not meant as a negative. Thanks, newmommy, for a nice new soup recipe.

I added some fresh dill and a pinch of cumin (a similar recipe on AR called for those) and it was delicious. I had the choice between yellow, purple, and orange carrots and I chose the purple one thinking it would come out purple tinted, but of course it didn't. should have used orange, lol. anyway, great recipe.

This is simple and foolproof. Comfort food indeed! I had close to 2 cups of mashed potatoes leftover from dinner the night before, so I blended them in at the last instead of cooking potatoes in the broth. It was delicious and none leftover.

We really enjoyed this soup, I used real cream in the mix.

Was pretty good, did need a lot of salt for my taste, but was inexpensive and have plenty leftover :)
