Cream of Cauliflower Soup
Puree the cooked cauliflower and add the onion salt in food processor, blender or food press. Set aside. In a heavy 2-quart saucepan, melt the butter. Blend in the flour, salt, and pepper, stirring until well mixed. Remove from heat, and add chicken broth and milk, stirring with a wire whisk. Gradually add the cauliflower to the milk mixture.
