    My mom was cleaning out one of her closets and came across several folders full of recipes that she had clipped from magazines and newpapers over the years. I can't tell which newspaper this came from. This is a simple and flavorful soup!

      Made for a satisfyingly warm dinner on a cold night. I subbed in some chicken stock for the water and I used 2 cups milk and 1 cup light cream instead of all cream. Need to watch the fat intake. Made for Photo Tag in the Photo Forum. :)

      Made this delicious soup for lunch today. I was pleasantly surprised by the addition of the lemon juice -- it really adds a wonderful depth of flavor to the cauliflower. So simple to make and so satisfying! I will most definitely be serving this soup again. Thanks for the post! Made for the 1-2-3 Tag, January, 2012.

      This is a very nice and quick to make soup. I had to make a couple of changes due to dietary restrictions of one of the diners and substituted skim milk for the cream. To make up for any loss of flavor that could cause I also used chicken stock instead of water. I love that the cauliflower is left in lovely chunks instead of being pureed.
