      Very good, i made crab and shrimp cauliflower chowder. i added onions and garlic, and a lot more salt and pepper. The cauliflower gives a great texture like potatos but healthier

      Nummmy! I used non-fat cream cheese, canned crabmeat, 2 cups chicken broth, extra cauliflower and some shredded carrots *takes a breath* and only 1 tbsp butter. I made this into 4 servings and we enjoyed it with a melt sandwich for supper. This is a light tasting chowder, not heavy "fishy" like other chowders. Very, very good!

      I caramelized an onion and a few cloves of garlic, then added water and cauliflower to cook as in the directions. It's hard to believe, but I got a smooth soup even for having replaced some of the butter with olive oil and using whole wheat flour (didn't have white)! I also used fat free evaporated milk and imitation crab (on sale). It all tasted absolutely decadent and rich, but was actually quite healthy. I served this with some whole wheat crisped pita triangles. Thanks for a great recipe.
