Recipe by Chef John
"Sometimes an idea for a recipe pops into my head and even before I make it, I have a pretty good idea on what the results will be like. To say I was happy with the results would be a serious understatement. Soup is comforting, soothing, soul-warming not something that chefs normally day-dream about. This soup was a different story. It may be the single greatest soup I have every made."

When I see Chef John, I know it will be high fat. Since I don't want to look like Chef John, I changed the recipe. I didn't make the fritters, I sauteed the onions, garlic and chopped mushrooms in 1/2 tablespoon of butter and subbed silken tofu for the heavy cream. Much healthier and weight friendly. And it was very good.
Chef John is amazing! I always try his recipes because, just plain fact, they are always the best! Followed this recipe to the letter and it was exquisite. My husband, who is not crazy for cauliflower, asked for seconds. He said it was the best soup I've ever made. Thank you, Chef John, for making me a heroine in my own dining room!
Loved it! Chef John does it again!!
I only made the soup - I was looking to use up some cauliflower. The soup was really good. I topped it off with some crumbled bacon and some parmesan cheese, which was delicious. Next time, I'll try it with the fritters.
