Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was my first time at making Cauliflower Cheese Soup. It was awesome. My family enjoyed it so much. I even got hugs and kisses for such a great soup. Thanks!

Hugs and kisses? Is there a better recipe review than that? We are thrilled your family loved it. Thank you for letting us know!

Delicious and easy, and a nice change from broccoli cheese soup.

Been making this recipe for years from Mr. Food, and everyone always asks for seconds!!!

This is such a great soup...I blended the cauliflower/chicken soup mixture in the blender to make a more creamy soup. I then added the cream and cheese. I did add some salt to it, and not as much pepper. It was amazing. All the grandkids from ages 4-12 loved it, as did the rest of the family. Will definitely do this again.

Good soup, might use more onion next time,,,

Like your Broccoli soup recipe, I'm going to try this Cauliflower Soup in a bread bowl.

Good soup. Try cooking some dumplings in it before you add the roux, etal.

Can't wait to try this recipe. Do you have a recipe for Wsconsin Cheese Soup? I had some cauliflower wisconsin cheese soup from Zuppas and it was so good I would love to be able to make some.

Can I use something else in place of the heavy cream? I'm on a diet program.

I have used instant potatoes to thicken a soup as well - worth a try or you could do the flour and or cornstarch to thicken also

Wonderful!

Just made this soup with cauliflower and broccoli. Came out so good. Thank you. AR

Excellent soup- I have made it several times for my family. Carolyn
