I believe that soup can be a restorative and soul-soothing meal. When loves just about to drive you batty, you can sit down with a nourishing bowl of soup a just breathe. Inhale the aroma of the wonderful soup, and exhale softly as you cool that spoonful before taking it in.

I really love making these creamy, vegetable soups and have several others you may enjoy like my Parsnip Soup or  Potato and Leek Soup with Smoked Sausage. If you want a creamy soup that also has some meat to it, try the Creamy Tomato and Chicken Soup, which is a slow cooker recipe.

Stir in the minced garlic, and cook another minute.

Add the cauliflower, chicken broth, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Turn the heat up to medium-high and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat a bit and simmer until the cauliflower is tender. This will take about about 15 minutes or so.

Using an immersion blender, puree most of the cauliflower to create a nice, thick soup. Leave about a quarter of the florets whole.
