Creamy, Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

I refer to this as my dad's recipe, since the first time I ever tried it he had made it. This soup is amazingly delicious and can be made with either cauliflower or broccoli (or both, as shown here).

Creamy, Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

2 Tb. butter
1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. milk
2 c. chicken broth
1 onion
1 head cauliflower or broccoli
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
8 oz. (2 c.) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Place cut-up veggies in large pot with chicken broth and cook, covered.
  • While veggies are boiling, melt butter in small saucepan.
  • Add flour, salt, and mustard, and cook a couple minutes while stirring constantly.
  • Add milk and stir until smooth (can also blend in blender, if preferred).
  • Once veggies are tender, add white sauce to the pot and gently boil a few more minutes.
  • Add shredded cheese.
Serving suggestion: Sprinkle with real bacon pieces and serve with my whole wheat dinner rolls.
