2 small heads
salt to taste
1 1/2 cups
shredded white Cheddar cheese
freshly ground black pepper
My heads were really big, so I doubled everything but the cream. I wanted a chunkier soup, so I just mashed the tender cauliflower with a potato masher for thicker bits instead of running it in the blender. When sauteeing the garlic and onion, I threw in two chopped red peppers that were about to go south I used heavy cream instead of milk and SLJ6 was right on about the thyme. I did add a bit of red pepper flake after trying it. Very good soup. This will be quite nice to eat on all week. Makes a lot so make sure you really like this or you have family that loves soup.
A lot of bother, not much flavor.
just an idea, velveeta in place of cheddar...mmmmm.
also, if you want, try using a powdered onion soup mix(one w/out beef fat) + water. i'm not crazy about veggie broth.
Oh my! This is amazing.. Double the butter and triple the Garlic!
I used Mont Jack Cheese instead. Plus i did 1 cup milk 1/2 a cup light cream. And this is to DIE FOR! My girlfriend was completely IMPRESSED!
This is a recipe that begs for innovation. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable. I also added a diced hot pepper. After adding the cheese I tasted and added a 1/4 stick of butter, white pepper and a generous amount of cayenne pepper too. This really spiced it up and made it yummy.
I really liked this soup. I used heavy cream instead of milk to make it a little creamier. I thought it was good with vegetable broth.
This was a good recipe but I added a little bit of wine into it to add a bit more oomph. It reheated well, too. My daughter didn't like it, but she is only 4 and doesn't like anything too weird.
A gorgeous recipe. I'm sharing my changes for the frugal chef in a hurry!
In place of fresh cauliflower, I used a similar amount of leftover vegetables (mostly cauliflower & broccoli, and a few carrots). Lefover cooked potatoes, homemade chicken stock (instead of vegetable broth), an extra pinch of nutmeg, and white pepper instead of black. This soup vanished quickly, and immediately made my favourites list.
