Cauliflower Leek Soup

Cauliflower Leek Soup

This cauliflower leek soup is light, creamy, and tasty.

Makes: 8 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 4 cups Reduced Sodium Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  • 1 bunch, about 3 or 4 Leeks, dark green stems removed
  • 1 medium head Cauliflower, chopped
  • Kosher Salt and Fresh Pepper, to taste
  • Optional Toppings: Pepper, Dill Weed, and Tuscan Garlic

Instructions

  1. Wash leeks very carefully to remove all grit. I usually cut them horizontally and separate the rings to make sure no dirt remains. Coarsely chop them when washed.
  2. In a medium soup pot, melt butter and add flour on low flame. Using a wooden spoon, stir and cook 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add broth, leeks, and cauliflower and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low for about 20 minutes, until cauliflower is soft.
  4. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth adjusting the salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
