There is just something about a rich creamy velvety soup at the end of a long day!

My family loves this soup, it’s like a big ol’ bowl of comfort food just showed up at your door.  I am seriously waiting for spring to show up at my door, but since it hasn’t yet…  I’ll take a bowl of this instead.  This cauliflower soup is so deliciously velvety and creamy and loaded up with cauliflower and cheese, it’s the perfect meal!

I use a combination of parmesan and cheddar but I’ve also made this soup using gruyere for a fantastic flavor.
