Creamy Cauliflower Soup

The Spanish Smoked Hot Paprika lifts this whole dish, adding a nice depth of flavor to each spoonful. Add the paprika at the end, the heat of the soup will gently release the spice’s pleasant aroma. Paprika’s smokey, earthy, hot, and fruity flavors complement the richness of cream, fontina cheese, and cauliflower.
