Recipe Notes

As winter approaches this is a soup to be made again and again. If you choose, this goes nicely with a piece of bread or a roll or just on its own.

As much as I love pumpkin soup, I really enjoy this cauliflower soup.

I’ve previously posted recipes for cauliflower soup, one had celeriac and spam while the other had Pialligo Farm bacon with Gorgonzola cheese.

Delicious cauliflower soup

Last week I made a dynamite spicy pumpkin soup. At the time I was also thinking of making cauliflower soup and adding some jalapeño peppers to spice it up a bit. Of course I’d also add my secret ingredient, viz., SPAM®

Tonight I put together a cauliflower soup with a twist. In addition to the jalapeño pepper and SPAM® I added some celeriac. It was delicious.

Tonight I got home a little early and made cauliflower soup

It’s been quite cold over the last week so what could be better than some home made soup with enough left over for lunch the next day.
