Continuing on with soup week, I thought it was high time I did something with the organic cauliflower my mom left at my house (don't all moms leave cauliflower in their wake?). So I made this delicious recipe from Pioneer Woman. Can I tell you how much I love Pioneer Woman? I want to be her. But since I can't, I can at least make her soup--and it's delish.
Let me give credit: this is her picture because 1) she takes amazing pictures and 2) my soup is just in a big stock pot, not a cute tureen. I don't even own a tureen. But I should, because I love soup and I make it a lot. I did alter it slightly, I used skim milk instead of whole, but cream instead of half and half. Just depended on what I had in the house. I also used half the butter and added potatoes to the mix and garnished with cheese. And I stuck the stick blender in it for a second or two to make it even MORE creamy (plus it's great at disguising vegetables!). I think it would also be good with some bacon on top. Isn't everything better with bacon?
My kids each ate 2 bowls. I won't say how many I had. Serve this up with crusty bread and a dark green salad and you've got a family favorite. Thanks Pioneer Woman!
