Cauliflower and Mixed Veggie Soup

I'm in a cauliflower phase.. what a fabulous vegetable. Raw, crisp, tender, or mush, it is always extremely satisfying and comforting.
Ingredients:
1/2 head fresh cauliflower cut into florets (I had already eaten the other half raw the previous day as an appetizer)
1 zucchini, diced
1 onion, diced
1 jalapeƱo, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1 handful frozen peas
1 mini can of corn (or half a can)
2 cubes bouillon
4 cups water
1/4 cup beer (I always drizzle some out for the homies)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 handful shredded cheese (I used swiss, but use cheddar!)
leftover cooked chicken in pieces or whatever.. or bacon.. or meatless
some EVOO or butter
Directions:
1. Brown the onions until soft, then add the cauliflower and stir arounnd a bit.
2. Add the curry, chili powder, and everything else except the cheese and cream. Bring to a boil and let simmer until cauliflower is tender to your liking. I like mine to have a little bite, so 20 minutes was fine.
3. Stir in the cream and cheese. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Add more water if it is too thick.

Serve hot and melt with it. Now that's comfort food! This would actually be perfect for the crockpot..adding the cream and cheese at the end, of course.
