Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt butter over low heat and saute your onions and celery until they are translucent.
2
In a large pot, combine the sauted veggies with broth and cauliflower. Simmer unitl the cauliflower is tender.
3
With a slotted spoon, remove the veggies from the pot and place into a blender. Carefully pour as much broth as will fit into the blender and puree until smooth. (let the steam vent thru your lid a little to prevent decorating your cabinets with HOT cauliflower)
4
Pour your pureed mixture back into the pan and add your cream, salt and pepper.
5
This is soooooo smooth! It is better than cream potato soup, the texture is much more fine
6
If you want to reduce some calories, use skim milk or even low fat sour cream instead of the half & half.
7
Zest it up Options: Add 1/4 C american cheese and melt into the soup.
Top with fresh parsley sprigs Add 1/4 t of nutmeg or mace
