Am I the only one who wants to be a bear and hibernate every winter?
At any rate, it's time to break out the comfort foods of soups, breads and hearty casseroles to help us all make it through the season. And recently, I found a new comfort soup to add to my repertiore. Taste of Home has a wonderful Cream of Cauliflower soup recipe.
For the most part, simply follow the directions online. I added more carrots and celery than the recipe called for. More vegetables are good!
The instructions do not mention how to chop the cauliflower. I did some of it in the food processor, being careful not to chop too finely. To make sure I had some good-size bites of cauliflower, I also chopped some by hand.
From there, add the creamy mixture to the larger soup mixture.
The recipe states to cook the soup for 10 minutes after adding the cream mixture, for a total of 40 minutes cooking time. I'm sure I let this simmer for well over an hour, and it was fine.
