4 Tbl. Butter (Vegan Margarine)
½ to 1 Onion, diced

4 Tbl. Butter (Vegan Margarine)
6 Tbl. Flour
2 C. Whole Milk (Alternative milk source is okay)

Spices, to taste: Celery Salt, Salt and Pepper

Melt 4 Tbl. Margarine in a large pot. Add onion, carrot and celery. Cook for a couple minutes. Add cauliflower and parsley, stir, cover and cook for 15 minutes.

Pour in the stock, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
