Cauliflower Soup


I’ve never had Cauliflower Soup taste this good. I don’t care if it’s 90 degrees outside. When I get a taste for soup I make it anyway. This soup in particular is delicious mostly because cauliflower is my favorite vegetable next to asparagus.

With an abundance of cauliflower at the end of the summer, it’s a good time to make this soup. It’s quick and easy to make using canned broth and tomatoes. Just season the soup with a little thyme and nutmeg and your ready for a great meal.

This delicious Cauliflower Soup is made with chunks of cauliflower. If you love soup as much as I do, you’ll love this recipe.
