I told my wife that I said her Broccoli Cheese Soup also made great cauliflower soup, and she ordered me to send this recipe, which is her variation of her mom's recipe. This is good, but I think the Broccoli Soup variation is better... just a matter of taste, I guess.

  3. Saute onions in melted butter until soft.
  4. Season with pepper, add flour, and continue to cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Add flour mixture to cauliflower and chicken broth, and stir carefully so that cauliflower doesn't break up.

This is sooooo good. Better than any other I've tried and so simple to make. Whipped up a batch in no time. Delicious. Will be a staple in our house during the winter months. Can't wait to try your brocolli-cheddar soup also. I didn't add the extra bullion as I was out and used mild cheddar as that was all I had and still super. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
