A great creamy-smooth soup for cold winter nights. The thickness of the soup is determined by the proportions of cauliflower to water. Because different sizes of cauliflower are out there, add water if soup comes out too thick.

Yum! I used less water and pureed the carrots along with the cauliflower, and it couldn't be any better.

Damn good! As an avid cooker I can highly recommend this to anybody! What I changed a bit: I used good chicken stock (Knorr brand is the best!) instead of water and I also added Cayenne pepper like some other reviewer suggested - only if you like spicy. A permanent recipe in my collection. You can serve this with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and a drop of half-and half for presentation.

Good recipe...milk can be added instead or in addition to water.(also, no need to boil carrots separatly)
