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!

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

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 li...
