DIRECTIONS

  • Put the carrot (peeled but not chopped) and the cauliflower (also one big hunk) into a large pot with 2 cups of chicken broth. Bring the broth to a boil then reduce to a low boil. Add the broccoli and steam until the broccoli is al dente.
  • Drain the broth into a liquid measuring cup. Add more chicken broth to increase the total volume to 3 cups. Remove the cauliflower and carrot (which should be well softened) and puree. Set aside.
  • Add butter to a skillet, and saute diced onion, pepper flakes and garlic over medium low until softened and slightly carmelized. Add cream. Cook over medium for four minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in the reserved chicken broth. Return to heat over medium and bring to slow boil. Boil 1 minute then remove from heat. Stir in the vegetable puree. Slowly add the shredded cheese in small amounts, stirring to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.
