Cream of Mushroom Soup
I used to eat cream of mushroom soup a lot back in the day.
Then (whenever it was) I started trying to eat less soup in a can, I just sort of forgot about this soup. So sad.
But, I started thinking about it again recently, and having had such good luck making my other soups with a cauliflower base (faux-tato soup, & roasted red pepper soup) I suddenly realized I could have been eating cream of mushroom soup all this time! What wasted time!

*You can also steam the cauliflower if you want. Simply place in a pot, add enough water to cover half way, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Turn it down, and let it simmer 5-7 minutes, until the cauliflower is tender. Add the onion and garlic to the mushrooms to sauté.
We've been enjoying a lot of soup with this fantastically cold, snowy, wintry weather! I'm fairly sick of shovelling our driveway, but I am not sick of soup!
I used the leftovers to make a meat & potato casserole with potatoes, meat, cheese, and this soup, which is so tasty, simple to make, and really customizable!

This looks really good. I've been trying to go low carb, and this looks like a nice alternative to canned soup. Does this soup have a "cauliflower taste" to it? Have you made it both ways, i.e., by roasting the cauliflower and by steaming it? Does roasting the cauliflower give the soup more flavor?

I'm supposed to eat gluten free, so this recipe looks fantastic, but I'm also not supposed to have cauliflower. Actually I'm not supposed to have mushrooms either but I'll make an exception. My question is, do you think it's possible to thicken the broth with corn starch instead of cauliflower? I'm sure it will affect its flavor a lot, but might be preferable for me.
