This is a superb soup recipe. It's creamy and cheesy. If you love cauliflower cheese, you will love this soup. It's the perfect comfort food for winter. Cauliflower is simmered with potatoes, onion, ham and cheese. Enjoy with crusty bread rolls.
I cooked the onion with a bit a oil to get it started. Added one rib of celery and one finely diced carrot (nice way to sneak more veg in) Added the potatoes & Cauliflower and instead of water I used boxed chicken broth to cover (about a litre) Cooked all that down, then used a hand blender to combine. Then added the ham and cheese. I used 6 slices of cheese which is quite a bit less than called for but it worked well. The kids loved this soup. The littlest one ate 3 bowls full.

I love soup and this is definitely in our rotation. I've made it a number of times and I can get even my picky relatives to eat a little. I don't put the mushrooms in anymore - I love mushrooms and will add them to just about anything but they don't really work in this. Also, if you feel like cutting the cost or want something more as a side, it's good without the ham, too. With the ham, it's a great meal all by itself. - 12 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a different type of soup. My kids are asking when I will make it again. I think the next time I will try it with broccoli instead. And I will also sautee the onions first. I didnt add mushrooms since I dont eat them. We are looking forward to this soup again. It is a little pricey tho. The cheese alone cost was over $5.00, and the ham was $6.00. But it was well worth it. - 13 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
