Reviews for Cauliflower Pork Soup
"I made this because I had cauliflower to get rid of and needed prepare a quick meal for us. Gave this four stars because it's a great base recipe. I made it as is, but it was a little bland for us, so I added a few things to fix it up. Added was some cajun seasoning, a dash of thyme, crushed fresh garlic and also 1/4 cup grated romano cheese (in addition to the cheddar) and some lemon juice to brighten the flavor. I also tossed in a package of baby kale which I needed to use up but was not necessary to improve the soup. As I said, a great base recipe and I'll be using it again and again, maybe trying new things next time. Thanks!"
