Reviews forCauliflower Soup
"I am just questioning how this soup can be considered gluten free when it uses all-pupose flour (it comes up in the results when I search for GF) ?"
"I made this and really enjoyed it. I had to sub out a few things though. If you are unlucky like me and did not have any type of broth on hand, you can use a couple cups of water with a couple tbsp of melted butter added to mimic the fats in broth. Then, i added a few seasonings to the mixture to taste : cardamom, turmeric, nutmeg, white pepper and a dash of salt. I also begun with some chopped onion and 2 cloves of garlic (just preference) . I also did not have carrots, but used frozen butternut squash in its place. Next time if i have more time, I will roast my vegetables."
"I was a bit disappointed because of the outstanding reviews. The ingredients weren’t anything special and that is what I got. My changes were that I precooked the cauliflower by roasting it before adding it to the broth after the other vegetables were cooked. I also used the Smokey hot sauce for more flavor. I will be “doctoring” the leftovers as I serve it."
"Very quick and simple to make. Delicious!"
"easy and super delicious, even without a carrot;)Saving it!"
"Absolutely delicious and very simple to make. I used almond milk and chickpea flour. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing."
