This is a delicious vegetable soup made with cauliflower and broccoli and a creamy cheese sauce. I'm not sure where I originally got this recipe but I have been making it for years. This is such a simple and quick soup to make. I enjoy having garlic toast with it. The pictures in this recipe are from where I doubled the batch , that's why it looks like so much more than the serving suggestions.
