Recipe Ingredients for Cauliflower and Buttermilk Bleu Cheese Soup

1/2 head cauliflower
2 oz blue cheese
1/2 c onion, diced
1 1/2 T butter
1 1/2 T flour
1 c milk
1 1/2 c water

Recipe Directions for Cauliflower and Buttermilk Bleu Cheese Soup

  1. Boil cauliflower in salted water, about 5 min. & drain, reserving water.

  2. Separate cauliflower into small florets.

  3. Make a roux in a medium sized sauce pot with the butter and flour.

  4. Cook the roux for about 20 seconds then add the diced onions.

  5. Saute over low heat, so the roux does not turn brown for five or 6 minutes.

  6. While constantly whisking, slowly drizzle in 1 cup of the cauliflower water, if you add the liquid too fast, you will get a lumpy soup.

  7. Add the cup of milk and stir.

  8. Add half the cauliflower, and blend with a hand-held immersion blender until smooth.

  9. Add the bleu cheese and stir until it is fully melted.

  10. If the soup is too think, add more of the cauliflower stock.

  11. Taste and season with salt and pepper as necessary.

  12. Finally add the reserved cauliflower and stir.
