2 1/2 cups chicken broth

2 cups 2% milk

With temperature on low, make a rue with the butter and flour. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes and then add milk, garlic and thyme. Add cheese if desired.

Boil diced potatoes in water with shredded carrots until just tender. Drain.

In a separate pot, boil the coarsely chopped cauliflower in the chicken broth for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to low and mash cauliflower with potato masher. Add the milk mixture and a dash of salt and pepper. Add diced potatoes to soup (do not mash the potatoes). Simmer for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle shredded cheese and/or crushed croutons on top just before serving. Enjoy!
