    cylee's Note:

    I hate cauliflower. My cousin had this for dinner one eve, didn't tell me what it was. Now it is a fav! I've forgotten the exact recipe, adjust as needed to your taste. Recipe is quite forgiving. Freezes well!

      This is delicious! I love the taste of this soup. It is so easy to put together and so very good for you. But I have to say....it is not visually appealing! I put some chopped green onions on top for my photo! I did use very rich, dark chicken stock for this, and that may have affected the color. But who cares how it looks! It is delicious! Going into my keeper file. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
