Cauliflower-Cheese Soup- 7 Points Plus- Recipe Week 3

12311 007

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup chopped cauliflower
  • 1 cup cubed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup light margarine (I use Brummel and Brown yogurt spread)
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups 1% milk
  • 4 oz. 2% shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In a large pan, combine the water, cauliflower, potatoes, celery, carrots and onion and bring it to a boil. Boil for about 10 minutes or until tender. Set aside.
  2. In a separate pan, melt the margarine and add the flour to it and stir until thickened Mine clumped up at this point, but I just continued to the next step and it worked out fine.
  3. Add the milk gradually to the margarine and flour mixture. Stir it until it is thickened.
  4. Stir in the vegetables and the seasonings.
  5. Stir in the cheese until melted.

This makes 4 servings of soup. Each serving is 7 Points Plus. Keep in mind, when figuring the recipe with the WW online recipe builder- I do not include the veggies, as I always count them as 0 points.

  9. The butter and flour.. That is called a rue and it is what is used for making the beginnings of all soups and sauces that you want to thicken and have a creamy base. So if you want to make macaroni and cheese or a gravy you would do the same thing. You melt the butter and then add the flour and whisk for a minute on medium heat to cook out the flour taste and then whisk in the stock, milk etc so that it does not leave clumps..Hope that helps..
