  1. How can so few ingredients taste so good.  I just made this soup for the first time and it’s incredible. I will make this often now.  Thank you!

  2. Amazingly delicious and simple to make. I waited for the simmered ingredients to cool down just a touch and put them into my blendtech blender instead of using an immersion blender, and it worked pretty well. Might add more chicken broth to cool it down next time, as I enjoy thinner, brothier, and more voluminous soups. I paired it with a salad and apples with peanut butter.

    I just finished making this soup and it is soooooo good. The only modifications I made was I sauted the onions and garlic, used 1 cup of ho salt vegetable broth and 3 cups water, added 1/8 tsp of nutmeg, garlic powder , sage and paprika. Thanks Gina for all you do.

  4. I have made this soup several times now and it’s become almost a weekly staple. It’s simple to make and very satisfying. I following the directions to a T and I add in Smoked Paprika….because I add that to everything. This has helped me to stay on track on WW program. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Excellent soup! So easy to make! My husband, who loves to cook and made a comment that he doesn’t care for the things I have made from this site. Well that has changed. He LOVED IT! WENT BACK FOR A SECOND BOWL! He asked that I make more! That’s saying alot!
    Keep up this site! Thank you Gina!

    I did make it and it was delicious. I added 4 bouillon cubes instead of two. I also added carrots and celery.

  7. This soup is simple and delicious! For those of you who thought it was bland, use less water. I use 4 cups. Also after done you can sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan. Yum!!!!

  8. This recipe is fantastic!! After starting WW always looking for new ideas for low fat. Was looking for a substitute for my normal cauliflower with tons of cheddar in it…this worked!!! To get me a little cheese I added laughing cow light …just a couple , helped make it creamier too oh and some Frank's red hot gave it a little zing too! Thanks Gina!!!

  9. I added a clove of garlic and left a cup and a half of cauliflower in chunks for texture, sprinkled each serving with reduced fat cheddar cheese and voila delicious, thanks for the recipe. DOQ

  10. This is so delicious and such a filling soup, thanks for the recipe!! I'm making it for the second time today and I roasted the cauliflower, onion and some garlic before adding it to the broth to simmer. It smells delicious!

  11. I strained the cauliflower and onions and puréed them in a food processor, added them to a new pot and then added back in the water/broth they cooked in to ensure I got the right texture. I also added a tablespoon of Smart Balance butter. I thought the consistency was perfect – very thick and creamy without milk or flour. To bump up the flavor, I think I'll add celery and maybe a little carrot next time. Otherwise I think this recipe is about as easy, tasty and low cal as it gets!
