Delicious Homemade Cauliflower Cheese Soup Recipe

I just love cauliflower...I like to snack on it raw with some veggie dip, as a cooked side dish or in a cooked soup like this recipe from my aunt. Cauliflower is one of those veggies, I just can't get enough of as its so versatile and healthy to eat.

This recipe was given to me by my 83 yr old aunt a few years ago and I just love to make it for my family.

Homemade Cauliflower Cheese Soup Recipe

1 large head of cauliflower
2 tablespoons of minced onions
2 tablespoons of melted butter
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of table salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1 can of chicken broth (standard size can)
3 cups of milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup of fresh chopped parsley

Wash, drain and remove any leaves and/or blemishes from your head of cauliflower. Chop cauliflower into small bite-sized pieces. Bring a large pan of water to a boil and add in the chopped cauliflower and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Cook until it becomes fork tender, drain water. In another large pan, saute the minced onions in butter until onions become tender. Blend in the all-purpose flour, table salt and ground black pepper. Slowly stir in the chicken broth and milk. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring very frequently, until the soup reaches the boiling point. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese and continue stirring the soup until all of the cheese has melted. Slowly stir in the cauliflower and fresh chopped parsley. Turn heat down to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the stove and serve immediately.
