Great recipe! I did make a few changes which greatly enhanced the flavour of this soup. I used fat free half and half in place of the milk. I added 1/2 tsp. dried thyme and 1/2 tsp. dried basil. I added about 1/4 tsp white pepper and a smidgie of msg. This went together so quickly I will be using this recipe often. Thanks for a super recipe.

Full of flavor & so filling - a good soup to have for dinner when you're trying to eat on the light side. I used onion, not leeks, and tried to cut down on the butter just a bit. I also threw in one beef cube, which I do with most soups that are chicken broth based. This was a cooking tip from my very wise European grandmother, who has been gone many years, sadly. I used a potato masher, which left some nice chunks of cauliflower.

Very enjoy soup. You get a good amount from not a lot of ingredients and the cauliflower flavor is really nice. I used skim milk and that cut the fat content some and as I made a 3 serving amount (but I'll get 4 and maybe 5) I don't think that 1/4 cup of butter split into that many servings is at all horrible. Thank you Axe for a lovely soup that will be great all year round. I think this would be good cold too!

This is a nice, thick soup. I halved the recipe, but still used 2 leeks. It's a great basic recipe. I garnished with chives and bacon bits to add some extra flavor. Sharp cheedar cheese would be wonderful in here. Thanx for sharing. I'll make this again.

This soup was very good. I made some changes. I didn't have leeks so I used Knorr's Leek soup. I added some granulated garlic and chopped large onion. I also made a white sauce 1/2 butter and 1/2c flour to make a paste in separate pan and added 3 cups milk. Once it started to thicken I added it to the cauliflower broth and let it thicken. I did not blend the cauliflower. I just broke it up into smaller chunks. I like to chew my food. Very tasty, I will make this again.

We enjoy cauliflower around here, so this recipe was a big attraction for me! I'm also on a kick with recipes using leeks, it seems, so used them here, too, along with some homemade vegetable broth to keep this vegetarian! It was very easy to put together this GREAT TASTING SOUP! I also left some of the cauliflower a bit chunky! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

We just loved this soup!! I halved the recipe as there are only three of us but there were plenty of leftovers and everyone had two bowls! I found it so easy to prepare using onions (didn't have leeks) and pureeing with a stick-blender (immersion blender) which worked beautifully. Served it with a salad and a 1/2 loaf of crusty french bread; just delicious! I couldn't taste the cauliflower, but found it tasted so much like cream of potato soup. My husband and daughter sprinkled theirs with shredded cheese and croutons and announced they wanted it again soon. Delicious and easy soup, ready in no time at all. Enjoy it now while the weather calls for such a warm and comforting meal. You won't be sorry.
