It's very different than other cream of cauliflower. It is my favourite for now. The ginger, the turmeric and the lime juice give the particular taste.

This soup got mixed reviews. We all love cauliflower so I really felt it would go over better. I measured everything and made this exactly as directed with the exception of using half & half for the cream. I 5-star loved it all the way, while Buddha and my nephew did not like it at all. I now have a large pot of low calorie and tasty vegetable soup that I will freeze half for another day and enjoy the other half tonight and tomorrow. ;)

I usually make a bisque with cauliflower, but I'm glad I tried this. I used celery flakes instead of celery stalk, as I don't care for cooked celery. I also upped the turmeric quite a bit. After 30 minutes, I added half-and-half instead of cream, since that's all I had. I then just heated it up - the veggies were really done and I did not want them to get any softer. (Perhaps my florets were smaller). I made half the recipe and ate all of it for dinner. So much for lunch tomorrow....
