Cauliflower Cheese Soup

The kids and I have been eating soups and stews quite a bit lately. One of our favorites, that at least Jen and I are almost always craving, is this Cauliflower Soup. I thought I'd share the recipe with you today.

1 medium head cauliflower          
  broken into small pieces               
1/2 stick (4 TBS) butter             
2/3 cup finely chopped onions     
2 TBS flour                                
2 cups broth                                 
2 cups light cream (half and half)
Salt to taste
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
Grated cheddar cheese
Fresh cut chives, for garnish

1. Cook cauliflower in boiling salted water to cover until just tender. Drain and save the liquid. In a large pot, melt butter over low heat. Add onions and saute until soft and transparent.
2. Stir in flour, cook for a minute or two, then blend in broth. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil. Add 1 cup of the reserved cauliflower liquid, the light cream, salt and Worcestershire sauce, then add reserved cauliflower.
3. Just before serving, heat soup to boiling; remove from heat and stir in grated Cheddar cheese to taste. Ladle into bowls, sprinkling more grated cheese and some fresh cut chives over the top of each serving.

Sometimes, if we can't get fresh cauliflower, we use a one pound bag of frozen cauliflower.
