Lovely tasting soup. I used half/half instead of the cream and dried thyme. :)

Wow! This soup is absolutely delicious. We love caulflower soup and the addition of the gruyere cheese really added a great texture and flavor. The only change I made was to add some cooked bacon. Will definitely make this soup again very soon.
