A delcious and very warming soup to serve during winter. Found this in the paper and it was just so easy to make. I served with crusty bread and I also used bacon instead of prosciutto.

A great way to use cauliflower. They have some excellent organic cauliflower at the grocery store now and they are not expensive either. I sauteed some garlic and onion and celery before adding the rest of the ingrediants in the pot with 5 cups of homemade chicken stock. I also used 3 large yellow potatoes. I served the soup with I think my boyfriend fell more in love with me after that meal.

Wonderful soup for lunch on a wintry day. I was out of cream so used milk instead, and that was fine. Had to use dried chives, so cut that back to just over a tablespoon. Doubled the garam masala and garnished with crispy bacon. We found the thickness just right. Thanks for posting.

Great taste. I blended the soup totally. My soup was a little on the thin side and next time I would use only 5 cups of water and maybe an extra potato to give it thicker texture. I served with bacon garnish and crusty wholegrain taost.
