Description

Creamy, cheesy and completely delicious, this soup will keep you warm on those cold winter days.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 whole Onion, Peeled And Diced
  • 1 clove Garlic, Peeled And Minced
  • ¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 56 ounces, fluid Low Fat, Low Sodium Chicken Stock (approximate)
  • 1 whole Baking Potato, Peeled And Cut Into Bite Size Pieces
  • 1 head Cauliflower, Trimmed And Cut Into Florets
  • 2 Tablespoons Chives Or Scallions, Chopped
  • 1 cup Low Fat Milk
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • ½ teaspoons Curry Powder (optional)
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Add the butter, onion and garlic to a Dutch oven or other large stock pot and cook on medium low heat for approximately 15 minutes or until the onions are translucent but not browned. Whisk in the flour and slowly whisk in the chicken stock. Add the potato and cauliflower, bring to a boil, cover and cook for approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until the potatoes and the cauliflower are fork tender.

Working in batches, add the soup to a blender or food processor and puree. Be careful not to overfill or the hot liquid will leak out of the blender. You can puree all the soup or leave it as chunky as you like. Place the soup back in the stock pot and turn the heat to medium. Add the chives, milk and cheese and season with curry powder, salt and pepper.

Serve hot and garnish with additional cheese and croutons, if desired.

56 oz of liquid seemed like too much, so I used 1 box (32 oz) of chicken broth and it turned out just fine.
