Simple and delicious! Like it most when I make it using vegetable broth instead of water. It gives it a depth of flavor that the water cannot provide.

Excellent! And easy to make

Yeah really yummy. Probably would have been better with a fresher cauliflower. It was even better cold.
This recipe offers an excellent opportunity to use more bone broth in your diet.
It's pretty good! I roasted garlic with the cauliflower. I assume it would be even better actually pureed, but as I am a poor college student, I have no tools to do that. Mashed with a spatula works fine.

It is rich and healthy
Wonderful recipe and easily converts to a mashed cauliflower substitute for mashed potatoes. Just add a little less liquid and some onion and it’s amazing. I used cream chicken soup as the base. Yum!

I thought this was great
Yummy, but a bit salty. Original with butter and cream would be a bit better on that I’m sure, but not so healthy of course.

Cooking the cauliflower for hour and a half in the oven is a bit much for me, but the result is really good. No need to add salt if you use stock.
Vicki 26 Mar
Used part milk and part chicken broth
Maddy 26 Mar
Really easy and pretty good winter warmer! Will make again :)
Hi 24 Feb
I went half chicken stock and water. I also added a piece of garlic a teaspoon of sugar and a little saffron. And cheese on top.
Very good! I used frozen cauliflower and roasted it for 1/2 hour instead. Still turned out delicious and smooth !

This soup did not turn out well at all the onion was overpowering. I added more seasonings to add a more complex flavor. I will not make this recipe again and I am glad it didn’t make very much.

This is pretty plain. I'm sure you all knew that from the list of ingredients though. I did one of the cups in almond milk to make it more thick, and added paprika, celery salt, and garlic salt. It's good but I don't see myself making it again. It would definitely be better with some carrots.

Even the little one liked it. Maybe we will try roasting the onions next time.

Very simple to make. It has a nice creamy texture. I added fresh parsley as a garnish. I would make it again.
Zoe S. 1 Nov 2017
Great flavor but the texture was grainier than expected. Perhaps this down to me using a regular blender rather than a vitamix
Brenda B. 22 Oct 2017
Creamy. Nice roasted flavor. Super easy, especially with immersion blender. I ended up adding garlic and other seasonings, Consider serving with cheese or croutons if on your diet, as it is a little bland alone. Have fun with it.
Justin 16 Oct 2017
It was wonderful I added some chipotle spice and garlic and onions when I roasted the cauliflower
Lana 9 Oct 2017
Big fan. Super simple! I roasted my pre cut cauliflower in the over with black pepper and garlic (figured it was easier then to roast the whole head). Then to boil I used 2 cups veggie stock and 2 cups water. Very minimal ingredients but tasted great. Used as a side to a BLT :)
Mitch 2 Oct 2017
Pretty good- I added three cloves of garlic = very good. Plus roasted 5 Clovis of garlic in the oven. Excellent when dropped into the soup.
Charlotte 21 Sep 2017
It was delish and super easy!
Alycia Novotny 14 Sep 2017
Amazing! I added black pepper & used vegetable stock but other than that, this was a great recipe!
Khoo T. 25 Jul 2017
Delicious! I used butter to fry the onions so it was much more creamy.
Bailey 27 Jun 2017
Loved it! I added a bit more water a bit of garlic and nutritional yeast to make it a little bit more flavour.
