Simply delicious! The feta is a nice change of pace from cheddar and the cauliflower is not strong tasting. I thought I had cream but no so added a patty of butter with the milk. My blender has died-alas-so I used an old fashioned hand beater to puree and worked fine. Thank you Studentchef for sharing.
Made for the *Pet Parade* event, this is a great recipe & makes 4 generous servings hearty enough to be a meal if served w/crusty rolls as I did. BUT it is also a low-cal easy-fix, ingredient-friendly & just darn good. Using my magic bullet for the puree step, I made a full recipe, added only garlic, opted to use 1T ea of parsley + dill & otherwise made as written. I was a bit unclear about the feta as the only time it is mentioned in the prep is its use as a garnish. I decided to puree roughly 1/4 cup w/the soup mixture & use the rest as garnish, so that amt may not have been exact. DH gave this 5 enthusiastic stars & said it was 2nd only to my lobster bisque. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. DH will ask for it often & I'll be happy to comply. :-)
Thanks for posting this recipe - I love fetta and it was such a great addition to this soup. I can't believe I never though to try it before. Very comforting but with a great zing. I sauteed the leek in olive oil first before adding the rest of the ingredients to simmer. I also added bit of ground cumin, which worked well.
Very nice variation on the norm--the leeks and feta are terrific. I used roasted vegetable stock to keep this vegetarian. A good, healthy, comforting soup with a neat twist. Thanks, Chef!
Our family loves cauliflower soup and this version did not disappoint! The dill addition is always enjoyed but this is the first time we'd had feta or leek in the soup. Very nice combination of flavors that flow so very well together! Thanks for sharing this unique variation. Made for the No Nonsense Nibblers, ZWT 6.
Definitely a winner in the soup department ~ The flavor combo of leek/cauliflower/potato was wonderful, especially with the feta! I used some homemade chicken stock, which made it even more special for us! A copy of this recipe is now in my to-make-again file of soup recipes! Thanks for posting it!

This soup is pretty good. I used a mix of dill and parsley, as twissis suggested. The feta flavor was fantastic in there, but I could just barely taste it through the soup. Next time I will add extra feta crumbles both into the soup and to the top. Thanks for the great recipe.
