This recipe was sooooo good!!
Carole Shortt says:
This was my first effort with an ip, and it was delicious. I omitted the butter and flour and added salt and pepper. I used a small amount of blue cheese because it was on hand. Very tasty. Yes, I’m an ip believer.
Alex Cabral says:
This soup is so creamy and delicious. I added pan fried bacon, chopped up, for garnish. I also added freshly minced garlic to the onion and celery. Phenomenal!
Randall Hauk says:
This really ought to be called "Soup for Gorgonzola" because that's what it is to me & why I will make it over and over again just to completely ignore the "4 ounces" on the recipe and pile it onto my portion. Don't judge me!
Tiana D. says:
Gorgonzola is the perfect partner to Cauliflower. This soup is so creamy and delicious my family had seconds (and maybe thirds shh). Highly recommended to lovers of cream soups and great food. A great time to use the immersion blender as well, love to have the opportunity to pull that out of the drawer.
Laura Griffin says:
This cauliflower soup was very delicious. It was so quick to make in the pressure cooker! used my immersion blender and the consistency was thick and creamy. I didn't have gorgonzola so I used Parmesan, and it was fantastic.
Katie Hason says:
I love cauliflower soup, it's so underrated! This recipe was very delicious. The gorgonzola cheese goes perfect with the soup, or you can skip it for a vegan option. I'm going to make this again soon, it's great for cold weather days!
