Cream of Cauliflower and snap peas soup with fresh herbs. I didn't bother to take pictures along the way as I wasn't expecting much. But this turned into a delectable creamy soup; a perfect blend of flavors and texture. It took very little time and was quite simple. It rivals good soups at the fanciest of restaurants. The fresh herbs and creamy texture make it very special. I hope I can reproduce it.
