My mother started mading this soup after my 3 older sisters moved out. I was quite happy about the lack of competition! This soup is awesome and tasty. Even those who claim to hate Cauliflower will enjoy. My 9 year old takes this to school in her thermos! I have made this with fat free ingredients and it still tastes great.
