Artichoke & Bacon Cauliflower Soup Recipe

Artichoke & Bacon Cauliflower Soup Recipe

When I had surgery, my oldest son, a chef, came to cook my meals. He made a simple cream of cauliflower soup with ingredients I had. I was so touched that he came to care for me. This soup reminds me of that special time. — Mildred Caruso, Brighton, Tennessee
