Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup

15 Oct

Fall=soup weather. Yay for soup. Don’t be scared away by the cauliflower in this one – my husband is not a fan of cauliflower and almost refused to try it, but I talked him into it and, surprise! I did not spare him the, “I told you so.” I actually like to mix mine with the Roasted Tomato Soup – kind of a half and half concoction. Yum!

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp butter

1 medium onion, chopped

1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups milk

32 oz chicken broth

1 head (2 1/2 lbs) cauliflower, cut into 1 inch pieces

1 tsp Dijon mustard

8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

In a 4 qt saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until golden, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour and salt; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Gradually stir in milk and chicken broth. Add cauliflower and heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until cauliflower is tender – about 10 minutes. In blender, with center part of blender lid removed to allow steam to escape), blend cauliflower mixture at low speed in small batches until very smooth. Return cauliflower mixture to saucepan; heat over medium heat until hot, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir in mustard and 1 1/2 cups cheese until melted and smooth. Garnish soup with remaining cheese and serve.
