Silky cauli soup

What do busy bees turn to who want to give it their best in their social life and kick butt at hosting loved ones? Soup is the answer! 🐝
At the end of last week, I was awaiting my sister and brother in law in Rotterdam while juggling that famous work-life balance. After spotting a cauli in the fridge this soup came together in a heartbeat. Nothing like a warm soup to feel like you are taken care of. When in need, turn to soup!
