This is one of those recipes that I have been making for years without ever actually having written it down. We call it Cauliflower soup - but the carrots play an integral part of this soup. The carrots give this a rich cheesy look without the cheese. Of course, it is delicious garnished with grated cheese if you would like. This is also excellent made with broccoli instead of cauliflower.
