  • 1 tablespoon salted butter

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 (32 fluid ounce) container chicken broth

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, chopped into small florets

  • 1 (16 ounce) package aged Cheddar cheese

  • 5 cups milk

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and fry until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and cauliflower; bring to a boil.

  2. Reduce heat slightly and boil gently until cauliflower is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, grate Cheddar cheese. Whisk milk and flour together in a bowl.

  4. When cauliflower is tender, slowly add milk-flour mixture, stirring until combined. Simmer until soup has thickened, about 5 minutes.

  5. Remove from the heat and stir in grated Cheddar until melted and blended together. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

You can use broccoli instead of cauliflower, based on preference. Either way is tasty!
