So, I had this gorgeous head of cauliflower, it's fall, so, I wanted to try soup. I looked around and got a general idea of what I wanted to try and thought this recipe sounded tasty. I didn't have leeks, so just used an onion, used salted butter, and garlic. Always garlic! Instead of steaming the cauliflower, I roasted it with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper, until nearing tenderness in the oven around 425. I added just a bit of water and covered with foil to steam. I don't think anything tastes better than roasted or grilled veggies with that combo, and I thought it might make this more flavorful which I needed since I didn't have tarragon on hand and just used what little fresh thyme I had. Also no cream or white pepper, just added a bit of milk after I pureed the soup and a small amount of cheddar and parm. My husband mentioned several times how good it was and I agreed. Very nice flavor, rich, but still subtle. Will make again.
