I love a good bowl of soup for lunch on a cold day and this was dee-lish! Super easy, really subtle but so good! We found that we could have easily doubled the recipe, so we did. So that means of course, you can easily now halve the recipe. Perfect for any size lunching group you may be catering too. The Cauliflower Cream is raw, and now rates a recipe of it's own as it was outstanding as well as vegan and acted a bit like cream as designed! Enjoy it as you wish on other things or it does make an excellent veggie dip as well!
