Cauliflower Soup

Recipe by mersaydees

This is from 250 Delicious Soup Recipes -- a classic. It said "cheese", so in true 'Zaar fashion, I decided upon Pecorino Romano.

Top Review by Chef Pollo

Well, I'l be eating this tomorrow, but it tasted not bad so far. For some reason I found the instructions confusing. Like adding the milk mixture to the flour, when the milk had already been added to the cauliflower broth? Perhaps I wasn't reading right? Also no temperatures were indicated, which I like having in a recipe. And perhaps, but I'll know better tomorrow, it tasted a bit too strongly of butter to me. My suspicion is it will taste great, it just seemed like the butter was leaving a film in my mouth? Perhaps I messed the roux? Anyway, thanks for sharing!
