    For many years, I was terrified of dying. Then one day I realized I was only afraid of living. Regina Cates

    1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets
    1 medium carrot, shredded
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    2-1/2 cups water
    2 teaspoons chicken bouillon or 1 vegetable bouillon cube
    3 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    2 cups 2% milk
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, optional
    Directions
    In a Dutch oven, combine the cauliflower, carrot, celery, water and bouillon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender (do not drain).
    In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat. Stir in the cheese until melted, adding hot pepper sauce if desired. Stir into the cauliflower mixture.

    Test Kitchen tips

    Feel free to use 2-1/2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth instead of water and bouillon.
    Make this gluten-free by using cornstarch as a thickener. Omit the flour and butter, and make a slurry by whisking 2 tablespoons cornstarch into the milk before adding it to the saucepan.
