Dad’s Creamy Cauliflower Soup

My late Dad loved to cook, and soup was one of his many specialties. This soup was always a favorite, and now I love making it for my family, it brings back the memories of our childhood and the love we felt from him.

Both my parents loved to cook and no doubt that has rubbed off on my brother and I. My Dad’s style of cooking was very different from my Mom’s since he was born in Prague, Czech and she was born in Colombia. As you can imagine, the meals we group up with were pretty eclectic, but one of the simplest recipes my Dad made was this soup.

As a kid, we had a cup of homemade soup almost every night before dinner. I wasn’t always happy about this, because believe it or not, I was pretty picky. But on the night’s we had this soup, I never complained.

When my father lost his vision he was no longer able to cook. Thankfully I learned some of the dishes he once cooked. This one is EASY, only 5 ingredients. In less than twenty minutes you’ll have yourself a warm, delicious bowl of soup that is so light you can serve this as a first course for dinner or with a half sandwich for lunch.

There is no cream added, the silky texture is simply from pureeing it.  Dad used water and chicken bouillon which I often do (I use Better Than Bouillon) but here I used chicken broth instead; use whatever works for you. Sometimes I add some diced carrots, or even celery – there are no rules here.
