1 1/2 c. halved and sliced onions
1 tsp. curry powder

Heat the oil in a 4- to 5-quart saucepan over medium heat.  Add the onions and curry powder; cover and cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the broth, cauliflower, salt and 2 cups water to the pot.  Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
