I find this soup to be very similar to Potato and Leek soup but its refreshing to taste the cauliflower and cheese through it. A winter warmer that will delight.

  8. Add the blended half of the soup back with the mashed soup.
  9. Return to heat and add the cheese. Stir till dissolved (this wont take long so dont leave it too long).

  11. To top with toast:.
  12. Slice a baguette into thin slices.
  13. Cover the slices with slices of gruyere cheese (if you dont have gruyere, then use cheddar or whatever cheese suits you).
  14. Bake the slices in the oven for about 5 minutes at 180 until the cheese has melted.
  15. If the slices are too big for the soup, quarter them or half them.
