Cheddar, Cauliflower & Potato Soup

This is a super easy soup that my kids love. It is from a dairy ad in Canadian Living from ages ago. Add a crusty bread and salad and it's a perfect light dinner or lunch.

4 cups cauliflower (about 1 small head), chopped
1 cup potato, diced
20 oz. chicken broth (either homemade or canned condensed)
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
2/3 cup onion, chopped
1/2 tsp thyme
3 Tbsp flour
3 cups milk
2 1/2 cups shredded medium (I use old) cheddar cheese

Cook cauliflower and potato in broth until tender. Meanwhile, in large saucepan, melt butter. Over medium heat, saute onion until tender with thyme. Stir in flour and cook one minute. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in cauliflower, potato and chicken broth. Remove from heat, add cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Season to taste. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Yummy and even better the next day!
