Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon unbleached flour (gluten-free is fine, too)

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium saucepan, make a roux by melting the butter on low heat.
  2. Add the flour and stir about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken broth, onions and cauliflower and set heat to medium.
  4. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over medium-low heat until vegetables are tender (about 20 minutes).
  5. Purée with an immersion blender until smooth.

    Season with salt and pepper.
