Sensational soup! Enjoyed immensely for a hot lunch with cheese on toast. Pureed 3/4 of soup in blender, leaving some florets intact for texture and visual appeal. Will love to make again for taste, comfort factor, and ease and speed of prep. thanks!

Curry paste adds a great kick to cauliflower soup! Very tasty and turns out thick and rich - great lunch soup along with a few slices of rye bread and cheese... Yum! Thanks for sharing!
