Cheesy Vegetable Quiche with Cauliflower Crust

Being a baker, my brain is constantly thinking in recipes– my Safari bookmarks, notes in my iPhone, and scribbles in the margins of my calendar are filled to the brim with recipe titles and ideas (real life Pinterest, over here). My brain is also constantly thinking in indoor cycling songs, but that’s a completely different problem I have. I subscribe to about 10 different food blogs, and I get an email whenever one of them updates (which you can do with mine in the top right of the sidebar!) , so I always have new ideas waiting for me when I wake up and throughout the day.

In a large stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the carrots, peppers and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring, until well incorporated, about 5 minutes more. Add the chicken stock, beer and half-and-half and cook, whisking often, at a very slow simmer over medium-low heat for 15 minutes. Add the cheddar to the soup by the handful, whisking each batch until smooth. Puree the soup in batches in a blender (holding a thick towel over the lid to prevent overflow) until very smooth. Just before serving, reheat the soup until steaming and taste for seasoning, adding salt as necessary. Blending Hot Liquids: When blending hot liquids, remove liquid from the heat and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
