TODAY's Dylan Dreyer has a very special cauliflower soup recipe that's in high demand among some of her biggest fans — and it's been one of her son's favorite meals since he started eating "real food."
On Wednesday, Dylan posted an adorable video of her son enjoying a bowl of his mom's homemade soup.
"What kind of soup?" Dylan inquires.
"Colly-flor!" an excited Calvin exclaims.
He then eagerly finishes the bowl with a new addition to the kid-friendly meal: a nice hunk of bread.
"Cauliflower soup has been a favorite since he started eating real food. Now it’s dressed up with olive oil and pancetta...oh and BREAD!" Dylan posted along with the video.
Requests for Dylan’s recipe originally began flooding her Instagram account after she first posted about it last October. According to the 3rd Hour of TODAY co-host, the soup — a family favorite — is a dairy-free take on cream of cauliflower. She usually garnishes it with crispy, salty pieces of pancetta.
“His & Her cauliflower soup with crispy pancetta,” Dylan captioned the original photo series of her delicious dinner.
Calvin and Dylan often share the same meals, thanks to Dylan's trusty Babycook blender that allows her to puree almost anything into tasty food for her toddler.
"I'll throw in what I'm eating for dinner and purée it up quick so Calvin can eat what I'm eating,” Dylan said. “He eats everything ... beets, apples, salmon, green beans, cauliflower, oranges ... you name it, I've blended it!"
Dylan's silky soup isn’t just Calvin approved, though.
Dylan’s co-worker, TODAY's Al Roker (who also hosts his own digital food series, "COLD CUTS"), is also a big fan. Plus, it's allowed for people following the ketogenic diet.
“So yummy,” Al wrote in a thank you post to Dylan after she made the soup for him last fall.
After both Al and Dylan posted about her cauliflower creation, Dylan shared the ingredients and cooking instructions with her followers — and it really couldn't be simpler!
“Many of you have asked for the cauliflower soup recipe. Here it is! Enjoy!! (And let me know how you like it!),” Dylan wrote, along with a photo of her perfectly scripted recipe card.
The soup, made up mostly of steamed cauliflower florets, also includes sautéed onions, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and it only takes about 40 minutes to make. Dylan has also been a long-time fan of this type of soup and even posted a similar recipe in 2015.
Dylan's fans were initially just excited about the soup, but many of the comments on her recipe post became centered around her gorgeous penmanship.
We're looking forward to more of Dylan's beautifully scripted dishes that we can add to our own recipe boxes soon!
