I made this exactly as the recipe depicts other than using sharp cheddar instead of extra sharp because I didn't have it. I am a vegetarian so I used water like the recipe said. It came out good but I felt like it needed something extra. I added some extra salt & pepper and a sprinkle of ground cayanne pepper to my individual bowl and it made a huge difference. Brought out the flavors of the soup while giving it a little zing.

This turned out great ! I also broke up the cauliflower with a potato masher and used half gouda (to give it a smoky flavor without the animal products) and half cheddar. This is fantastic for vegetarians if you use cheeses made with vegetable rennett instead of calf rennett. Definitely a keeper!
This soup is very easy to make; just like the bulk of the other comments have indicated. I took the advice of several other comments and used chicken broth for the water portion of the recipe. Other than that, I stayed pretty true to the ingredients list. I will be adding some additional salt to my bowl and probably some hot sauce to jazz it up a bit. All in all, a great soup. I have to say that I agree that it reminds me of potato soup and maybe even a cream of mushroom...
My husband raved over it... went back for a 2nd bowl (I was too full from the first) and he doesn't even usually like cauliflower!
I did make a few changes: chicken broth instead of water, 2 bay leaves, a cube of chipotle bullion, chopped fresh garlic. I did a few presses with my immersion blender before adding the flour/milk. It was chunky, creamy, Delicious!
I thought this was pretty excellent for being so simple to make. I did use chicken broth, instead of water...and only 1 cup of cheese. Two bay leaves & just a touch of basil, & I like a little more pepper. Topped off our bowls with a bit of crumbled maple bacon. I will most definitely make this again.
