Cauliflower and carrots share the stage in this cheesy soup that's sure to warm you up on the chilliest nights. We like it with hot pepper sauce; however, it can be omitted with equally tasty results. —Debbie Ohlhausen Chilliwack, British Columbia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 17, 2014

Great soup! It was very thick, and although I didn't mind it, others commented so I added some more milk to thin it out.

MY REVIEW

EXCELLENT soup! Everyone in the family loved the soup - even my 3 year old who hates eating her vegetables. I added quite a bit more of each of the vegetables and doubled the rest of the recipe. Definitely worth a try.

MY REVIEW

Great! Super easy and quick. I added additional chopped celery and carrots. Along with the chicken bouillon, I used some boxed chicken broth in place of some of the water. In equal amounts, I increased all the ingredients to compensate for the added vegetables. YUM!!

Easy & delicious. I've made it with cauliflower as the main ingredient, and also combined cauliflower with broccoli. Very good each time. Goes great with any sort of sandwich.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2014

This was very good soup. I used all boxed chicken broth in place of the water & no chicken bouillon cube. I added 1/2 diced onion, broccoli chopped pieces, 2 diced Yukon gold potatoes, & 2 garlic cloves. I also used half & half in place of the milk. I was trying to copy a restaurant's recipe. This was very close & the soup went quickly.
