Cauliflower Soup

I really wanted some cauliflower soup today, to my disdain, cauliflower was quite expensive!  But after tasting this soup, it was well worth it!

3/4 head of cauliflower broken into little florets
1 carrot - peeled and shredded
1/2 small onion - diced
1 chicken bouillon
2 cups water

3 T flour
3 T butter
1 t pepper
1 t salt
2 cups milk
1 cup white cheddar
1 T corn starch

Combine cauliflower, carrot, onion, water, and chicken bouillon in a pot until boiling.  Then simmer for 15 minutes.  The last 5 minutes of the simmer, in a small pot on medium, combine flour, butter, pepper and salt, and mix well.  Once melted together, slowly add in milk, then cheese, then add to the vegetable mix on low or medium, add the corn starch, continue to mix, then taste... add salt and pepper as needed.  Tastes great with french bread or garlic bread or saltine crackers.  Enjoy!
