I have been on a bit of a soup kick lately. It has started to cold, the air is crisp, its perfectly acceptable to bundle up in a scarf and hat and gloves. This cauliflower soup is perfect for this kind of weather. It’s light and creamy and delicious. You can add protein or more veggies – sauteed mushrooms, sliced steak, or some lean ham would all be delicious.
