Cauliflower-Broccoli-Spinach Cream Soup

"Of all the items on the menu, soup is that which exacts the most delicate perfection and the strictest attention." - Auguste Escoffier

Soup seems to be made for cold-weather seasons. This is a tasty, comfortingly bland, cream-based soup which my mother concocted. Nothing tastes quite as good as homemade by mom.

You will need:
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 5-6 cups cauliflower, cut up small
  • 5-6 cups broccoli, cut up small
  • 2 cups chopped spinach (frozen)
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery - 4 ribs
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups cream
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes plus 4-6 cups of water
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • pepper to taste
First cook the vegetables in chicken broth: water with bouillon, butter and garlic. Then puree and add cream. Serve hot, with salt and pepper to taste.
