    Very tasty, the cauliflower is a nice change from traditional vegetable soup!

    My husband is very finicky and liked this recipe a lot. He said he'd love to have this again. I, also, liked it a lot! I used broccoli, since I didn't have cauliflower, but will try cauliflower the next time. Great for a snowy day.

    Delicious. Easy to make. I didn't have any tarragon. So I left it out. I used frozen hash browns in lieu of regular potato. You can use a variety of veggies you have on hand and it still tastes great. Very versatile and tasty recipe

    Not fancy, ingredients are readily available, easy recipe and filling. What more could you possibly want? I serve it with a loaf of hot country bread and this is a perfect, cold weather, warm your insides kind of dinner. It's fantastic re-heated for a take-to-work lunch in a thermos. The aroma is killer! Thank you for sharing!!!
