Based off this recipe

 

I’ll admit right off the bat that I made a TON of modifications to this recipe. In fact, the only real similarities are that it’s a white bean and cauliflower soup seasoned with paprika. That’s not to say that the original recipe is a bad one, nor that I wouldn’t have liked it if I made it according to the recipe, it just requires a lot of ingredients that I don’t normally like to cook with/thought it was random to buy just for this (lookin’ at you, liquid smoke). So the point is, I made a soup not like the original soup but both are probably yummy.

Actually, the one I made was sort of bland. I put in what I thought was plenty of seasoning but it just tasted like cauliflower. Using an entire carton of broth also made it more runny than I like. I guess I’m too used to making absurdly thick soups now. The consistency was also why I skipped out on adding [almond] milk to the soup; if I’d added any more liquid in addition to the broth, it would’ve basically been cauliflower water. If I make this again, I’ll know to cut back the broth and add milk instead to achieve that creamy chowder consistency the recipe aims for.
