SO HOW'D IT GO?

While the soup looks like the picture, it is lacking in flavor. It would have been great with some kind of herb combo to go in at some point. I added an entire extra onion and a few cloves of garlic, then some vegan chicken broth base, salt, and pepper, and I still don't like it... :/

I'm sorry, but I didn't like it at all. It had very strange smell and taste :-( I didn't even have desire to eat it :-(

I had a massive cauliflower head from my garden that need to be used.  This recipe was a great base to play with.  I added gram marsala powder, curry, cilantro, a couple garlic cloves and some peas to add some color.  I pureed most of it, but left some chunks of carrot and cauliflower.  Warming and really filling.

So, I don't (and may not) have a picture of this b/c my camera is charging.....but it was really great! I was quite surprised. I sauteed the onion
first, then added the cauliflower and some garlic, then the carrots and water, and seasoned with lots of s and p. I pureed some of it, then added some leftover steamed kale, and pureed all of it. I ended up adding more s and p b/c the carrots made the soup sweet! I warmed it w/ a bit more water.  ;)b

oh also I would make sure your cauliflower/carrot ratio is good. I had a smaller cauliflower and 2 HUGE carrots and I think next time I will do a bigger flower with maybe 1 1/2 carrots. Still good just tastes more of carrots

it's very different not like anything I've had before but its great! A nice soup ready in 20ish min for me. But only 5 min prep. So simple and a great flavor. I will be making this again! oh and I opted to nix the spinach but just because I was to lazy to buy some.
