- 4 cups chicken stock or vegetable broth

Wash head of cauliflower, remove outer leaves and chop into florets.
In a large pot, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat. Saute onions until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle flour over onions and stir to create a paste. Cook 2 minutes.
Slowly whisk in chicken stock and increase heat to high. Soup should thicken slightly.

Reduce heat to low, remove bay leaf, stir in cream and adjust seasonings to your taste. Top with parsley if desired.
