Cauliflower Soup

I was about 8 years old when I first tasted cauliflower soup. My parents happened to be visiting relatives who had the most exquisite way of cooking food. I was always excited to find out what kind of dish we were going to get to sample that day.

On this particular day it was a creamy cauliflower soup that was presented to us. My first impression of the soup was one of confusion as I had no idea what it was.

After my parent sufficiently explained that it was a kind of vegetable, I slowly took a spoonful with some hesitation and I tasted it. I was surprised to find that the soup had an extremely comforting and creamy taste that I quite enjoyed.

That moment changed my opinion on cauliflower and I started to understand why everyone was raving about it. I am now a devote cauliflower soup fan and can never refuse a bowl of it when offered at a restaurant. I’ve since started to create my own version, and I’m sharing my recipe with you.
