I've been making this broccoli and cheese soup from the SparkPeople cookbook, and I was thinking of trying the same soup base with cauliflower. The recipe calls for fat-free evaporated milk. I guess it's a substitute for cream and you end up not being able to know the difference. The other main ingredient is 1 cup diced potato. Sautee some onions in a little butter, then boil the veggies and potato in some stock in the same pot, blend it, and add some evaporated milk and cheese. It's super easy.
I had leftover evaporated milk, and I hate throwing things away. I looked up some ideas and ended up adding it to a frittata. Some people suggested adding it to coffee in place of milk or cream.

I tried this soup this weekend.. mine came out quite thick.. had to add a bit of water at the end to thin it out a little.. but that might be because I forgot to add the 1/2 and 1/2, even after making a special trip to the market to pick some up! LOL. The topping REALLY makes the soup.. think it would be pretty bland without it.

Almost like magic, my January 2013 issue of CL appeared in my mailbox on the last day of 2012. Huzzah! I happened to have an uncut head of cauliflower, and some leftover smoked ham and sliced almonds in my fridge. The only ingredient I didn't have on hand was french bread - so I made a loaf in the bread machine. This recipe was definitely meant to be. Here's the link: www.myrecipes.com/recipe/roasted-cau li flower-soup-50400000125728/ This was my first cauliflower soup, and I really liked it. It's a bit like potato soup, but creamier, and maybe a bit thinner. The toasted almonds, ham and bread crumbs added a very nice texture and smokey flavor. I followed the recipe as written, except that I used an immersion blender to blend it. The stick blender worked fine, and I would use it again for easier clean up.
