I have a few recipes that I laughingly refer to as “almost famous” because they are the ones that I always get requests for. This is one of them. I have been making this soup for so many years that I can’t remember ever NOT making it. My recipe was also included in the cookbook my kids elementary school published way back in the 80’s. So that gives this recipe an extra boost of “almost famous!” You can easily double this recipe which I did for many years when my family was home. Now it makes the perfect amount for Dan and I to have a couple of bowls apiece. My soup season starts right now, in September and for us Northerners, cauliflower is just coming into its own this month. I love cauliflower but even if you don’t I bet this soup will change your mind!
