The Cream of Cauliflower and Almond Soup is a sumptuous choice with a mild, soothing flavour and creamy consistency interspersed with the exciting crunch of roasted almonds. Both cauliflower and potatoes are known for giving texture and volume to dishes, and naturally, this soup has a rich and luxurious feel, which is complemented well by the mild pungency of onions. As you bite into pieces of crisp roasted almonds in every spoonful, you can’t help wishing that the experience would last forever.

I never knew cauliflower can be used to make so delicious soup.. This soup has a perfect creamy texture and perfect taste of cauliflower. Almond essence gives it the almond flavour, but if you don't have that you can add some almond slivers to it. The soup tastes delicious even without the almond essence. Make sure you add salt and pepper in proper quantities because it is 1 of the main ingredients to get the perfect taste.
