What soup do you find most comforting?


I love potato leek soup. There's just something about that gentle combination of flavors.

The recipe from Potato lacked the creamy quality of other recipes. But I still loved the soup.

Beef stew, chicken noodle with big, wide egg noodles and cauliflower soup that starts with frying chopped up bacon are those flavours of my youth that are total comfort soups. :)

I sure do!


Cream of Cauliflower Soup

3T Oil
3T Butter
4 slices bacon, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 head cauliflower, washed & chopped
1 quart chicken stock
4T flour
1c table cream
4 drops Tabasco sauce
Salt & Pepper

Heat the butter & oil in a large pot and cook the bacon until crisp. Add the onion & cauliflower and cook for 10 minutes. Add the stock and let it boil for another 10 minutes.

Mix together the flour & cream until very smooth. Add to the soup very slowly, stirring constantly. Cook for 6 minutes & then season to taste with Tabasco, salt & pepper.

Sorry I didn't reply earlier. This recipe looks amazing! Unfortunately, I cannot use cream. :-(

That's too bad. :(

You know what could work well flavour-wise would be adding in a potato and then pureeing 1/4 of the soup with the potato and mixing it back in.

Also if you can a little bit of vegan cream or sour cream (if you can do that substitute)..that could add a bit more of a creamy texture?
