We enjoy this soup too.  I love how it is nice and creamy without any cream.

I've made the stock for it this morning and will finish it off later today. Can't wait to try it Chookie.

Glad you enjoyed it Judy.  Can't have enough garlic in winter.

I made this soup again. THis time I started with half an onion which I chopped with 3 mushrooms to hide them from DW. I sauteed these in a little butter and EVOO. I also used raw chicken instead of cooked. I added the raw chicken with the cubed vegetables and cooked for 10 minutes at 100 reverse speed 1.

I made this recently too. I did a large batch in my pressure cooker. I made it all in the pressure cooker as I made the  stock first with leftover roast chicken, and then just kept going with the rest of the recipe. It made enough to put some in my parents fridge when they got back from their holiday and for our dinner too.

ES, what a good idea. How did you mash up the Cauli to get the creamy base?

Thanks Chookie for this wonderful recipe. I made this last friday and it tasted yumm but was watery as I probably didnt get the cauli and water ratio right :D I made Isi's portuguese rolls to go with it and hubby loved the combo, will surely be making it more this winter, and I like the fact that the soup just does not have anything fatty, perfect on your tummy :)

Thermilover, your comment about the watery nature of the soup is interesting as I made it recently and followed my recipe, I also found it watery.
I thought next time I would double the Cauli.
I noticed another member used a whole Cauli. I am wondering if the size of the Cauli has something to do with it.

It certainly would make a difference Chookie. I used a good half of a large cauli and mine was thick enough.  Perhaps if you make it again (or anyone else for that matter) you could weigh the cauli to make it easier for others to get the right thickeness.

Exactly what i wanted to say Judy! Probably next time who ever makes can measure, and if it ends in a creamy texture, can update us :) But Chookie, it was still yumm :D

Thanks girls.  I think that some of the problem is that I fiddled with the well known Cauli soup from the 5.2 diet.   I thought, " must get those 5 serves of veggies a day. ". I then thought, " add a bit if chicken to balance the carbs with protein". Must keep fiddling.,

I picked up 2 caulis for $3.50 yesterday so made this soup with some of one of them. It is lovely.
