This can be made better by eliminating the potato flakes and cooking up medium diced potatoes. Add after cauliflower is cooked. Save the cheese out and let each person add what they want to. Saves having to clean up a messy pot.

I found this quite good and very well-received by those who liked a little spice. It was easy, especially with a hand blender which I used to blend all the cauliflower. I used a little more than the recipe called for and the flavor came through, mixing well with the ham, cheese and pepper (the strongest flavor but not the first one noticed. I will definitely make it again! I may try adding potatoes for a heartier soup and perhaps experiment with other seasonings to add body. I think that the kind of ham used and how it was cooked will also change the flavor a bit.

This soup is wonderful! I made it last night in anticipation of our sub-zero weather coming up. I added sliced mushrooms, zucchini, and green peas to the soup after I pureed some of the cauliflower. I added nothing else for seasoning and it was perfect. I only wish there was an easier way to clean melted cheese out of a cooking pot and bowls!
