Comments on this Recipe

I loved this soup. I didn't find it too sweet but I added another cup of stock. I used a whole cauliflower, about 2 pounds and kept some whole, just a preference. I used (dried) fennel since I didn't have tarragon, but it also has a licoricey flavour. I worried about it being too strong so I only added a bit. The flavour works well with the apple. Do add salt and pepper.

Great - Went with Apples vice Apple Juice. Threw some Broccoli in cause a had a little to us up. Nice!

i found this a little too sweet. i think i will give it another try but with real apples instead of apple juice - maybe it will change the sweetness?

I'm thinking I would prefer this to be more savory. I may use instead of the amount of apple juice, a combination of more stock w/ some unsweetened applesauce. Or, coconut milk! mmmm!!

I love this soup. I put an apple in instead of the apple juice and substitute more broth for the liquid. It has been such a crowd pleaser.

I added a pealed sliced apple to cauliflower instead of the apple juice and doubled up on the Veggie broth. With a little cinnimon with tarragon, salt and pepper. Delicious.
