Cauliflower-Cheddar Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

This is a modified recipe, originally called Farmhouse Cheddar Soup, which I clipped out years ago. I make it often and freeze in individual servings to reheat. You can reserve 1 1/2 c of the cauliflowerets to saute in some butter and add after the soup has been pureed. I usually just puree it all in the soup pot with a hand blender.

Good flavors! Next time I would not puree, I would just use a potato masher, I prefer a less smoothe texture. DH made the comment that this recipe didn't taste "homemade". I was slightly offended. :)
