    I don't eat bacon, as I am a Muslim. I made the same recipe with lamb mince and it came out tasting great! - 1/26/12

    This can easily become low carb, by using cream instead of the milk, and spring (green) onions instead of regular ones.
    And adding a dash of nutmeg brings out the taste as well! YUMMM - 4/20/12

    I used vegetable stock instead of chicken. I left out the bacon and diced up a couple of ribs of celery. It was delicious! - 4/28/12

    I used green onions instead of regular onions, almond milk instead of dairy milk and omitted the bacon. For diabetic reasons I added cinnamon. Mmmmm.... good! Thanks for this recipe, I will use it often. - 4/20/12

    Does the nutritional info take into acount th fact that you are not draining the bacon grease out? I wonder how much that affects things since 2 slices of bacon in the tracker assumes just the crispy part... - 1/28/13

    A-mazing! I didn't have evaporated milk. I was going to use a bit of 1% milk but the soup is simply amazing even without it. It is creamy enough without any butter, cheese, or milk. Thanks for this recipe - I will be making it again. - 2/9/12

    This has been one of my "go to" soup recipes for several years. You can easily substitute brocolli for cauliflower and it is equally good. - 11/17/12

    This is a GREAT recipe for cauliflower soup AND it's very versatile, as I see others have already made some changes with success. I could see myself adding some grated carrots and other veggies next time I make it. AND I also added chives on top - GREAT flavor mix!! - 5/17/12

    I'm not a cauliflower lover, and since I had most of a head left over from a previous recipe I decided to try this. Cooked it on high in my crock along with some shredded carrot and sliced celery, adding the milk and bacon bits at then end. DELISH! You've made me a cauliflower fan! - 1/27/13

    This recipe, from what I see, appears quite similar to the cauliflower mash I make (my substitute for mashed potatoes), and I'm looking forward to trying it, substituting for the bacon due to its negative effects on my Crohn's. I've been craving a nice creamy soup! - 4/20/12
