    We had this tonight, it was a big hit! I used the whole cauliflower, leaves, stalk - everything, it made a lovely flavored soup. Couldn't be bothered to measure out the cream so I used a whole 300ml tub. We had it with walnut bread, croutons & little cheese & onion tarts.. Lovely! - 08 Mar 2014
