Cream of Cauliflower Soup

5

by: Mikey






This soup calls for a whole cup of cream to balance the flavor of cauliflower, which can be a bit aggressive if not tempered. If you like, reserve a handful of tiny cauliflower ’flowers,” boil them for a minute or two, drain, and use to garnish the soup.
