Who doesn't like cauliflower and cheese? This is why I made it into a soup. I use 1% milk instead of cream to lower the fat. If you would rather have Cream of Broccoli & Cheddar, just replace the amount of cauliflower with broccoli or mix them up. Whichever way you you make it, everything is good with cheese!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped

Melt butter in a soup pot, add onion and saute until tender. Add chicken broth, cauliflower and pepper. Bring to a boil turn down and simmer for about 15 minutes until cauliflower is tender. Puree using a hand held blender in the pot or use a blender to puree, then return back to the pot. Whisk together the milk and flour until blended. Slowly add to the above mixture until it heats through and thickens. Add the shredded cheddar cheese stirring until just melted, then serve.
