While I was making my plant sauce, I discovered how potato like cauliflower can be when it’s boiled and blended. When I decided to put it as a substitute for potato leek soup, not everyone could tell I had even replaced it. Cauliflower is such a great alternative to so many things I’m learning. It’s even perfect for a cruciferous crust! 😉 See how versatile it is in the cauliflower leek soup too…Print
Cauliflower Leek Soup
the creamiest, most comforting, warm soup. vegan. dairy-free. gluten-free. completely plant-based.
- Prep Time: 10
- Cook Time: 25
- Total Time: 35
- Yield: 2 bowls of soup 1x
- 1 cauliflower head
- 1 large leek, chopped (the body, not the hair lol)
- 3 shallots, peeled and chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- olive oil for sautéing
- 3 cups veggie stock
- 1/4 tsp of sea salt
- black pepper to taste
- optional: scallions to garnish
♡ chop all the veggies (cauliflower best chopped in small pieces) and set the cauliflower aside.
♡ add the garlic, shallots, and leek to the pot with olive oil and sea salt. cook on medium until somewhat translucent. stir when needed.
♡ add the veggie stock and the cauliflower pieces and bring to a boil.
♡ cover the pot with a little part uncovered. bring to medium-low heat and let simmer for 15 minutes/until the cauliflower is easy to break through.
♡ once all the veggies are soft enough take off heat and add everything from then pot into the blender. blend it on high.
cut the cauliflower into tiny pieces. this will be helpful because there isn’t so much liquid used. the pieces need to be submerged in the veggie stock so they can soften. the leek should be large and thick and if you can’t find one, use about 3 small ones.
The cauliflower leek soup is especially my favorite soup to sip as the weather gets cold. I feel that it’s so nourishing and comforting at the same time. If you are in need of extra strength, have a broken heart, are very happy, anxious, or just feeling very amazing this is the soup for you! Hahaha. I made this a while ago and I’m just posting it now. I think I’m going to make myself a giant bowl of it for dinner. With the weather changing, I think drinking the warm cauliflower leek soup can help me acclimate and not get sick. 🥰
