    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This is a recipe I came up with after trying a few different Cream of Cauliflower Soup recipes. I think the roasted garlic and the white wine imparts such a wonderful flavor in the soup. I like it to have a little consistency and not to be broth-like so I don't usually need to add any additional chicken broth, however, if you prefer a thinner soup you may need to add a little broth depending on how big your cauliflower heads are. I know it may look a little labor-intensive, but once you taste it I think you will agree it is well worth the time and effort especially if you serve it on a cold winter night.

      This is just okay. I too LOVE garlic and Swiss cheese but this is pretty bland. Don't think I'll make it again, I did follow the recipe but guess I should have added more cayenne or salt or pepper.

      a fantastic recipe for cauliflower soup and one I make many time over, I am an extreme garlic lover so this was right up my alley, I used crushed chili flakes in place of Tabasco, I'm going to give this a try using broccoli next time, what a great recipe I thank you for sharing Luby!
