Made it last night and it was delicious! I really liked roasting the cauliflower first, I think it gives it a depth of flavour missing in most cauliflower soup recipes. Do try it, not too strong on the curry, just a lovely zap! Thanks for a great recipe.
Very good flavor. I added 6 ounces of Half and Half just before I served it to give it a creamy texture. Everyone loved it. Great combination of easy and good
We enjoyed the flavor of this soup very much. I've never had roasted cauliflower before. The only thing I will mention is that it could have used a bit more salt for my own preferance and I didn't have parsley, so I subbed some snipped chives.
