    Yes, you can!

    can you use frozen cauliflower florets?


  • nnorman

    I agree. I used half and half on my first try and it worked out just great. The soup seems to have a lot of room for improvising and I think a touch of white wine or sherry would be good. We had some left over roast chicken so added that at the last minute [after blending] and had a full meal with a salad.

    One could actually puree the chicken too, as I do with the blendtec recipe for tortilla soup. I am addicted to that one!
