This is an Adopted recipe. I was looking at Cauliflower Soup recipes on this site today and this one popped up. I was feeling a bit adventerous today so I said why not. I had most everything to make it. Just had to buy the cauliflower and leeks. Aldi grocery stores have cauliflower on sale this week for 99cents a head. So this was very economical to make. I thought it was very good, the hubs liked it too, he did say it could use more salt. He is a salter, I try to cook without salt. Use your judgement with the salt.
I think this would be good with a little velveeta added, as well.
