I came up with this recipe myself when I had a ham hock and wanted to make something other than the usual split pea soup. The resulting chowder was satisfying and good-tasting. Mashed potatoes help give it a rich, creamy texture.
Our three young children aren't big cauliflower fans. But in this soup, the cauliflower can be mistaken for potatoes, and the rich sausage flavor helps disguise it even more. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.—Sarah Root, Twelve Mile, Indiana
Creamy soups can be soul-warming and so very satisfying, and Doris Davis's Cauliflower Soup is no exception. The Hellertown, Pennsylvania reader writes, “I received this recipe from a friend, and over the years I have served it many times and for many occasions.”
"This mildly cheesy cauliflower soup is one of my favorites," writes Karen Brown of West Lafayette, Ohio. "I first served it for a bridge luncheon, but it's not just appealing to women. Guys, including my two sons and husband, enjoy it, too. I make it often in summer, although it's good anytime."
"My aunt always made this smooth rich-tasting soup for me when I came to visit," recalls Heather Kasprick of Keewatin, Ontario. "I could smell it simmering as soon as I arrived, I think of her whenever I have a bowlful."
