i put a bit of red pepper through my cauliflower soup one time and only roughly blitzed it, was tasty.

I wouldnt normally put the cream into the soup either i would serve the soup and then put a wee bit of cream in the middle then

With either of these Cauliflower soup recipes i would add a tsp of cumin - FABULOUS - it gives a whole new dimension to the tast
