Cauliflower Soup

This is a rich, hearty soup that I dreamed up one snowy night during the holidays. Being
Italian, we usually do not eat meat on Christmas eve so I came up with this
soup that my husband and guests just fell in love with it and I have been serving it ever since.

I love making homemade soups, and this recipe is definitely a keeper! It's really hearty for a cold night and super easy to make. When using the potato masher, it does leave the soup a bit chunky. Personally, I liked it this way. But if you want a more smoother soup, give it a few pulses with an immersion blender. The Test Kitchen
