  • Cut up the fresh cauliflower (or other vegetables), or take the frozen ones and boil them in the water until not quite tender. Do not drain!
  • Combine the milk, flour, and boullion cube in a blender, blending until smooth.
  • Add the cubed Velveeta to the blender, blend (a few pulses) until just combined.
  • While stirring, add this blender mixture to the cauliflower and/or other vegetables along with their cooking water, in the same pan as they were cooked in.
  • Stir over low heat until it comes to a simmer, continue to simmer for about 3 minutes, until the soup thickens.

The chicken boullion cube enhances the cheesiness of this soup. Goes great with warm, crusty bread smothered with butter. You can also make it with any other vegetable.
