What an unexpected delight! I used this as a base, though I did tweak things a bit: I sauteed the onion (and garlic I added...what's a soup w/out garlic/!) in a bit of EVOO before adding the veggies and chicken broth (instead of water). While it simmered, I made the roux and then added it to the pot. I used a whole head of cauliflower, an onion, 5-6 carrots, and 4-5 smallish white potatoes. I reduced the butter/flour/milk by about 1/2 (just looking to "save" a few calories) and used about 1.25 C of a shredded "mac & cheese" blend. So good, though not the most appetizing looking. I also blended most of it, trying my immersion blender first and finally caving and using a blender for the larger chunks. I'm already looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow. THANKS, janiebear925!
