Cream of Cauliflower Soup with Browned Butter

Cajun Spiced Tomato Soup in Honor of Mardi Gras

I usually make King Cake for Mardi Gras. Because: cake! But this year, it is cold-cold-cold, and while baked goods are never turned down around here, it truly is soup weather.

I made this soup on the fly a couple of weeks ago for dinner. It was so good that I made it again–this time complete with bacon and Swiss croutons–for lunch with friends a couple of days ago. They loved it, and friend Roxanne encouraged me to go ahead and post it. So here I am, posting it.

Heck yeah. Bring on the soup!
