I've never been to Zupas. Even though I have a gift card that's been sitting in my wallet for about the last 6 or so months..... If this Zupas Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup is any indication of the food there, I think I need to stop by. Soon. The soup was creamy and delicious.
2 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1 head (2 1/2 pounds) cauliflower, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
In a large saucepan, melt margarine or butter over medium heat. Add
onion and cook until golden, about 10 minutes, stirring
occasionally. Whisk in flour and salt. Gradually stir in milk, chicken
broth, and water. Add cauliflower and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until the cauliflower is tender - about 15 minutes. In small batches, blend cauliflower in a blender until smooth (if you remove the center thing in the lid, it doesn't explode! Well, if you are doing it in small batches..... I still held it over the lid, but removed it to let the steam get out.) Return soup to the pan and heat over medium heat until hot. Remove from heat and add mustard and 1 1/2 cups cheese. Stir until the cheese is melted. Garnish with remaining cheese.
