Cauliflower Cheddar Soup

6 tbsp Butter, divided
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 clove Garlic, minced
6 cups fresh Cauliflower Florets
6 cups Vegetable Broth (I use organic vegetable cubes, 1 cube for every two cups of boiled water)
3 cups 10% Cream
4 tbsp Flour
2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese (medium)

1.  In a large pot, melt 2 tbsp of the butter over medium heat and saute the onion and garlic until onion is soft.
2.  Add the cauliflower and vegetable broth.  Simmer uncovered until the cauliflower is just soft enough to puree.  Puree the cauliflower/broth mixture.
3.  In another pot, melt the remaining 4 tbsp of butter over medium low heat.  Whisk in the flour until smooth.  Add the cream.  Pour it in slowly, whisking constantly.  Simmer until it thickens, whisking often.  Add in the grated cheese and stir until melted.
4.  Pour the cream mixture into the cauliflower puree.  Stir until it is well blended.
