Author Notes: This cauliflower soup requires few ingredients and it freezes well. After defrosting, cauliflower soup often needs a trip to the blender to regain its smooth texture and can be thinned out with unsweetened almond milk instead of water.
For the garnish: You can prepare pickled cauliflower in advance. I keep them in the fridge in small glass containers. Then, when time to eat I can simply heat the soup and add the toppings. You can also use them as a side dish in place of pickled beets.
