Cream of Cauliflower Soup II

Cream of Cauliflower Soup II

Made  times

"I make lots of cream soups and this is a good 'basic' recipe. I originally made this in 1990 and always make some modifications - we like lots of garlic as reflected in this recipe!! I also add or substitute other vegetables, i.e., broccoli and spinach. I also use potatoes for thickening rather than cream to keep the fat down."

This is a fantastic soup! I pureed all but one cup of the veggies and mixed those back in at the end. I topped mine off with a little shredded Monteray Jack cheese. My 2 year old liked it a lot ...

Delicious and very gourmet soup recipe. It takes a bit of time to cut up the vegetables but is well worth the effort. I would not exceed the 1/8 tsp of nutmeg as it almost overpowers the natur...

This was a delicious soup! I'm looking forward to making it a second time for guests! The sherry complemented the recipe and the potatoes was a great way to cut down on the fat!

We really liked this soup. I added just a little seasoning to give it a little spice. The sherry was a good idea also.

This is FANTASTIC! It doesnt look like your average white, creamy cauliflower soup, but WOW. We will definately be making this again!
