Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

2 cups chicken broth
2 (8-oz.) packages frozen cauliflower
1 medium stalk celery, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 medium carrot, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small onion, cut into eighths
1/2 teaspoon thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup low-fat milk
1 1/2 cups low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

Throw all ingredients except milk and cheese into a crock-pot and cook on low until vegetables are very tender, about 4-6 hours.

Carefully pour mixture into work bowl of food processor fitting with steel blade or into blender container. Cover and process until smooth. OR, if you like it a little lumpy and bumpy like we do, use a potato masher and have at it in the crock-pot itself--mash to your heart's delight.

Place your cauliflower mixture into a saucepan; stir in milk and cheese. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted and mixture is hot.  Serves 4.
