Tonight I was reminded that I had a head of cauliflower in the fridge that I needed to use before it went bad. I also picked up a holiday cookbook from Kohl’s that happened to have a recipe for Cauliflower Cheddar Soup. Now I hardly ever follow a soup recipe, so why start now…
So, I sauteed an onion, added 1/4 cup flour and cooked a couple minutes longer. Then I added 3-4 cups chicken broth and the cut up cauliflower. Brought it to a boil and simmered 10 minutes. Then I pureed the soup mixture, and added about a cup of velvetta cheese. Oh, I also added a bit of garlic powder.
While the cauliflower was cooking I poached a chicken breast. Chopped it up and then added it to the pureed cheesy cauliflower soup to boost the protien a bit.
Served the soup with homemade Rosemary Fennel Seed breadsticks.
Made for a very tummy dinner with leftovers portioned individualally for lunch or dinner during the week.
