Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 12 oz. cauliflower florets
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar
  • 12 oz. broccoli florets

Instructions
 

  • Add the butter to large, deep heavy bottomed pot over low heat and let melt. Add the onion and garlic to the pot and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes to soften.
  • Add the cauliflower, salt, mustard powder, red pepper flakes, and chicken broth to the pot and increase heat to medium.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Use an immersion blender to blend the soup until smooth and creamy. Alternately, carefully transfer the hot soup to a blender and blend. Add the cream and cheddar to the soup and stir well to combine.
  • When the cheese has fully melted, add the broccoli to the soup and cook for 5-10 minutes or until broccoli is as soft as you'd like, stirring occasionally. Serve with additional grated cheddar and crumbled bacon, if desired.
