I love this soup! It has become a staple in my meal planning and I have shared the recipe with friends many times. I add the lemon at the end and just use all water, no veggie broth. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to try your potato and mushroom soup.

Hi Jill!

I read online that it takes about 7 minutes to boil cauliflower. I wonder if 35 minutes will over cook the cauliflower?

This soup is soooo good, even my family that eats meat and dairy love it! This is fabulous. The only thing I might change is the amount of lemon juice, maybe reduce by 1/4.

This is a great soup recipe. I sprinkled a little smoked salt and it made it perfect for me.
