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.
