  1. This cauliflower soup actually looks good! My husband doesn't want me to buy cauliflower because he hates it. One time I tried to cook cauliflower in the microwave, and the microwave exploded! I'm not kidding. The recipe for cooked cauliflower said to microwave it for 20 minutes. I've never bought cauliflower again. But I might, now that I have this decent recipe!

    1. That's so funny exploding cauliflower. Trust me the cauliflower in this recipe will not explode as its cut small and is immersed in water for cooking.

  2. I love cauliflower soup! I prefer to steam cauliflower though and it only takes 10-15 minutes if you cut up the cauliflower into small pieces.

  12. I'm not such a big fan of cauliflower unless it's baked (I like it complete) but I'm definitely going to pass this recipe to my husband who is a soup fan.

  15. The soup look delicious, but that carb count won't allow me to indulge. I can only eat 20 carbs a day. If I could satisfy hunger with wishful thinking, I think I'm covered. :)

    1. @ Bonnie you can omit the potato totally if you like that will reduce the carbs.

  16. I love the combination of potatoes with cauliflower in pureed soups - it's a wonderful way to add flavor and stretch the starch of the potato...

  17. I really cannot imagine cauliflower soup! I would hate to lose the texture of the cauliflower. But I suppose there will be a lot of people who would rather have cauliflower in a soup. Ingenious idea though.

  23. This looks very healthy. We have a great Czech recipe of breaded cauliflower, although it is not so healthy. Simply cut into pieces, half boil, after cooling cover in flour, eggs and breadcrumbs, fry in a pan. Serve with boiled potatoes. Delicious.
