Personal Notes:
Delicious. Freezes well. Serves 6. I always triple this recipe as I don't like to see a soup pot half full! Triple all ingredients above except: Use 2 large cauliflower (make sure they weigh about 4 lbs total in the store; this will give you about 3 lbs after trimming), 1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash, 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, 2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp white pepper, 3 cups milk.
