Cauliflower cheese soup

I really like this soup. It's simple, and it's one of the few ways I know of to use cauliflower. This recipe uses a lot of cauliflower. It's a meatless dish, so it's something a vegetarian can eat. But I like it with breaded fish sticks! Mmmm!

Cauliflower Cheese Soup

1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 large potato, peeled and diced
1 carrot, chopped
3 medium cloves of garlic
1 chopped onion
1 t. salt
4 c. water
2 c. grated cheddar cheese
3/4 c. milk
1 t. dill
black pepper to taste

Reserve 2-3 cups of the cauliflower and set aside. Place the rest of the cauliflower, potato, carrot, garlic, onion, salt and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer until all the vegetables are very tender. Meanwhile, steam reserved cauliflower until crisp-tender. Pour large pot of vegetables into a large bowl, let cool for a few minutes, then blend in batches in your blender and return to pot. Add the steamed cauliflower and remaining ingredients. Heat through and serve.
