I like this recipe because it's made from scratch and doesn't use fake ingredients like American cheese or velveeta or canned soup as a base. The flavor is good and natural and it is very simple to make. I make mine a little richer by using half and half instead of regular milk.

Love this recipe! It is EASY to make and I've never messed it up! It is not easy to find a recipe that my 4 kids enjoy as well as my husband. (We double it!) This one fits the bill. Thank you!

I've never written a review on a recipe. I had a head of cauliflower and a head of broccoli my wife had bought for her homemade daily salads. She got called away on a business trip and I wondered what to do with these items.
I found this recipe and because I had double base ingredients, I doubled everything else and went for it.. For such a simple recipe it is the best overall soup of this type I've ever made..
I grated some nutmeg and about half a teaspoon on Colman's dry mustard, but that was only because I had it in the cabinet for use in other recipes of this type I've tried. That was ok, but had nothing to with the simple fact this is an A+ recipe and a saver.
It's one of those recipes that you can use as a standard for this type of soup.

Guest Foodie COMMENT: Best soup ever. I added 2 small stocks of celery and 1/2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg. I left cauliflower in small florets. Delicious from an old soup maker.

This just might be the best soup I have ever tasted-made it with cauliflower I had just picked from the garden. My husband and I absolutely loved it.I would recommend it to anyone!
