Cauliflower Soup ala Rosie
Quick & Easy Recipe by Jim Villella
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped green onion
4 cups chicken broth
2 packages (8 oz ea.) fresh cauliflower florets or use (1 lb. fresh cauliflower cut into small florets)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups shredded Pepper-Jack cheese
1/4 cup of Rosie's Sweet Pepper Spread, or for spicy taste use 1/4 cup Rosie's Hot Pepper Spread
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauce about 3 minutes or until tender.
Add 3 cups broth; bring to boiling. Add cauliflower and return to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook about 6 minutes or until cauliflower is almost tender. At this point you can either break up the florets into smaller pieces or use a stick hand blender to puree the soup right in the cooking pan.
Whisk together flour and remaining 1 cup chicken broth in a small bowl. Stir into saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes until soup is thickened.
Remove soup from heat. Add cheese, stirring until melted. Stir in roasted red pepper sauce and salt, if using.
