Cauliflower Cheddar Soup Recipe

Cauliflower Cheddar Soup

Easy Monday Lunches = love.  This recipe is probably one of my favourite soups because I can make it ahead, it freezes well and the kids love it!

Cauliflower Cheddar Soup (Wean Green Style)

1 tbsp butter

1 medium onion, chopped

2 stalks celery, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 potatoes, peeled & diced

1 head of cauliflower, chopped

3 cups chicken broth

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

2 1/2 cups milk

2 tbsp flour (I use gluten free)

1 pinch of nutmeg

1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese

Melt butter on medium in a large soup pot. Add onions, celery & garlic and brown for about 3-5 minutes. Add potatoes, cauliflower, broth, salt & pepper and bring to a boil on high heat. Once boiling turn to medium low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until veggies are soft.  Whisk the flour and nutmeg into the milk. Pour into softened veggies. Stir for about 5 minutes to let thicken. Transfer to a blender (in batches, once I blew it all up). Puree until smooth. Return to pot. Stir on medium heat for 5 minutes to reheat. Remove from heat and add 1 cup cheese. Stir to melt. Add salt & pepper to taste.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top to serve! A meal bowl is the perfect serving bowl:) Enjoy!!
