Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

I have to give credit to my mom for this delicious cheesy cauliflower soup recipe. She made it for Sunday dinner a couple months ago, and the whole family agreed that it has a really wonderful flavor.

In fact, I find that I really crave this cauliflower soup recipe and have been making it every couple of weeks since I had it for the first time! I’m sure to swipe all of my mom’s best recipes and I hope that my little girl enjoys my food to be a recipe-thief someday, herself. Passing on family favorite recipes is such a wonderful way to carry on the legacy of your loved ones!

There are so many different variations on cauliflower soup out there.

The first time I had a cauliflower soup, there weren’t any actual pieces of cauliflower in the bowl!

  5. Can this be made in a slow cooker?

  6. I made this soup for dinner tonight.  It was a little more time consuming than I thought it would be.But, I have to say it was worth the time.  I am eating it right now.Just a couple changes…..I added 4oz chopped green chili.  And about twice the suggested amount of cheese.I live in New Mexico and we think green chili makes everything better.:))
