- Transfer the mixture to a food processor and blend until smooth, adding a little more milk if it is too thick for your taste.
- Serve in soup bowls, sprinkled with the smoked paprika.
This is great! It's thick and creamy and the smoked paprika is perfect sprinkled on top. I actually put a little of the smoked paprika right into the soup as well as for a garnish. I needed a bit extra broth because my cauliflower was a bit larger than small. Thanx for sharing. This is a keeper!
