I make lots of cream soups and this is a good 'basic' recipe. I originally made this in 1990 and always make some modifications - we like lots of garlic as reflected in this recipe!! I also add or substitute other vegetables, i.e., broccoli and spinach. I also use potatoes for thickening rather than cream to keep the fat down.

So easy and so good! I did change a few things, like using heavy cream in place of milk (3/4 c.) since I had some I needed to get rid of. Honestly, if I was in a bind, and had neither, I thought the soup would have been fine without any dairy or extra liquid added (based on both flavor and thickness of the soup). Depends on your own personal tastes. I also added an extra carrot, used an eyeballed amount of fresh grated nutmeg, skipped the sherry altogether and added 2-3 tbsp. of parsley to the soup instead of using it as a garnish. I added it at the same time as the cauliflower. Finally, I followed others advice and held back a bit of the veggies to add back to the puree. I was so pleased with the versatility of this recipe, that I think I will be using it for a very long time to come.

This was a very satisfying and yummy soup. Simple to make and easy to modify. I cut back a bit on the cauliflower and added some broccoli, also added some grated sharp cheddar,parmesan and some cream cheese. Also, very important not to puree the entire soup, leave a couple cups of the vegys whole. Thanx Vivien.

This soup is an awesome addition to a cold winters day! I added lots of shredded cheddar before serving with french garlic bread. I also added a few very small florets of cauliflower and simmered at the end for extra added texture. This is a keeper!
