    Sounds like delicious filling and warming soup. How interesting, I haven't tried making soup with salmon.

    Good idea, I have some cauliflower traveling from one corner to another in my refrigerator, and it's a sign for me to do something with it. Thanks for the recipe! Hope you are feeling better, my friend. I made some chicken broth, thinking of you. Come see it. 🙂

    What a beautiful soup. I love that you took the leap and made a soup featuring cauliflower and salmon. It's simply gorgeous and I bet it is even more delicious.

    My mom makes cauliflower and shrimp soup with vegetable broth. I completely forgot about that soup until I saw this post. Looks so good. A lot of people are not into cauliflower, but I LOVE it. It's interesting to add salmon in this soup. I'm curious to give it a try. I love the clean clear soup like this. The addition of eggs was PERFECT. I was sold completely at that last shot! 😉
