Yellow cauliflower soup

Yellow cauliflower soup, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

This soup is a family favorite. My daughter, Whitney, loved this soup when she was still living at home. It is hearty for a vegetable soup and really simple. My ingredients:
1 head yellow cauliflower ( yellow has more antioxidants than white)
1 qt. chicken stock....homemade or purchased
3/4 cup smoked Gouda cheese, grated

Break the cauliflower into flowerettes and steam for about 10 minutes or less. Place half of the flowerettes in a blender with some chicken stock and puree. Then add the remaining half. Return the puree with the remaining stock to a saucepan and heat until warm enough to eat. Add the grated cheese and continue to heat until melted. You won't need much if any salt if you add the cheese. Maybe some pepper. My chicken stock has some herbs and pepper so I add very little pepper at this stage.
Whitney made this soup this week too. She added potatoes. It was more creamy & hearty.
Without the chicken stock....puree cooked potatoes and cauliflower and the result will be much like mashed potatoes.
no butter
no milk or cream
Bon Appetit!
