Have you ever eaten Cream of Cauliflower Soup from a resturant?...ITS "usually" amazing (I have never had any that I didn't love)!! This Creamy Cauliflower Soup "resembles" that yummy flavorful soup that you get when you go out to dinner. Its packed full of warm, comfy, cheesy flavor and just melts
right in your mouth...If (or when) I am sick, I think this will be my soup of choice
(instead of chicken noodle soup). It just screams "comfort food" to me and warms your entire body
as it slides down your throat...your mouth does a little happy dance and so does your family!
Its a "win, win" kind of night when you serve this for dinner!
