Cream of Cauliflower Soup

Drain it, reserving the water and about one-third of the florets.
Put the remainder through a food mill, blender or sieve.

Sauté in it, until tender:
2 tablespoons chopped onion
3 minced celery ribs
Stir in:
¼ cup flour

(I use bouillon, the reserve and water
totaling 4 cups)
Add the strained cauliflower and:
2 cups milk or cream
Reheat but do not boil. Add the florets and:
A grating of nutmeg
Salt and paprika
Garnish with: Grated cheese (optional)
