This is a creamy, silky, yummy soup! It's perfect for those of us on a low-carb diet. I used vegetable stock and real full fat cream. Left out the carrot and used two huge onions! I pureed the soup right in the pot with an immersion blender (known in our house as The Stick). Pay close attention to Step #8, do not let the soup boil, it can burn on the bottom of your pot. This reheats beautifully in the microwave. I can't wait to try a version with chopped leeks and maybe a little smoked mozzarella.

The addition of the mustards is a tasty one. Very nice soup.

Delicious!! The only change I made was to add a few broccoli florets because the cauliflower I had was very small. We enjoyed this and I am looking forward to leftovers. Thanks!

This is really easy to make. I like the flavours, particularly the dijon, although I only added 1 tablespoon of the dijon as I wanted to see what that would taste like before I considered adding more. I think I'll leave it at the 1 tbsp as that flavour level works for me. I also used skim milk (1/2 a cup) instead of the cream or evaporated milk, and it worked well. How much milk you use would depend on how thick you wanted it. The soup was tasty and I'll make it again!

I just ran across this recipe in my favorites file, and I can't believe I haven't rated it yet. To date, this has been one of my most frequently served Zaar soups. This is a wonderful soup, and it lends itself well to variations depending on the cheese you may have on hand. It is also a natural for crock pot cooking, so that's another big plus! Thanks for the recipe, Highland Lass. It has become a family favorite.

I love this soup! It's so simple to make, and well balanced in flavour. I think it is a sophisticated dish even without the stilton or port! Bravo!

This is not any ordinary cauliflower cheese soup. This soup is thick, creamy, and full of flavor! The extra old cheddar and the Dijon really make a great combination, but are not overpowering. I made it just as written and wouldn't change a thing. You can bet that I'll make this again. Thanx for sharing the recipe.
