Kneaders three cheese cauliflower soup

I got this recipe off of Good Things Utah while Kneaders was there!!! So then I proceeded to go to kneaders to try it and fell in love with it. I made it last night and it was soooo good! So here you go! Read everything before you start cooking. You won't want to make the rue until you have already done some things.
Yields 8 servings
Points per serving: 9

1/4 cup butter
1 cup green onion
1 head Cauliflower
1 1/2 TBSP Garlic
2 3/4 cup Cheddar Cheese
3 thick slices pepper jack cheese
2 1/3 cup Shirley J's white cheddar base
2 qts water
(if you don't want to buy the shirley J's -which I didn't you can just make your own rue. I will include my recipe for it, which I have already figured out the amounts for this recipe, so its a no brainer)

1. In a pot, place butter, chopped green onion and cauliflower (just break papart. Leave in fairly large pieces).
2. Cook on Medium heat with the lid on stirring occasionally until vegetables are well cooked. About 25 min. The cauliflower will become very soft and you will then have bite size pieces in the soup.
3. While the veggies cook roast garlic in a pan until slightly brown. Add to veggies and stir well.
4. If you are going to make a Rue, while the veggies are cooking prepare the rue (recipe is down below).
5. If you are using the Shirley J's wait till the veggies are done then add hot water and Shirley J's white cheddar base mix. Using a whisk sir until the Shirley J's is completely incorporated. Heat to 140 degrees.
6.Slowly add the cheddar cheese and crumbled pepper jack into the pot. Stirring while adding.
7. Simmer soup until it reaches 160 degrees. About 10 minutes.

olive oil
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
8 cups milk

Coat a deep saucepan with olive oil. Add butter and stir with a whisk. When butter is melted, add flour and whisk until the flour cooks fully and no longer looks white. Add liquid and incorporate till the lumps are gone. After is thickens then add it to the vegetables you have already cooked in the pan.

I didn't take a picture of mine because I wasn't gonna post it, but my sister wanted the recipe so I just stole this one from Good Things Utah!

  1. What about the white cheddar cheese, did you add it to the rue?
