Cauliflower Leek Potato Soup Recipe

This creamy, healthful one-pot cauliflower leek potato soup is ready in about 30 minutes. It's ideal for comfort with bacon crumbles and cheddar cheese. Heavy cream unnecessary!  

The Soup: – 2 tbsp butter – 3 large leeks (white and light green parts only), halved and thinly sliced – 3 – 4 cloves garlic, minced – 1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 5 cups) – 2 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes (about 3 cups) – 1 tsp dried thyme – 1 tsp salt, more to taste – ½ tsp black pepper, more to taste – 4 – 5 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth – 1 tbsp white wine vinegar Toppings: – ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese – Turkey or regular bacon crumble – Fresh chives chopped for topping

Ingredients

Melt butter in a big pot or Dutch oven over medium-low heat. After melting, add the leeks and simmer until soft and wilted, about 10 minutes.

With the cauliflower, add broth, potatoes, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir to blend, increase heat, and simmer for 15–20 minutes after the cauliflower and potatoes are fork-tender. Whisk in vinegar last.

Add gently to a blender by batch. Process on high until smooth. Adding half a cup of broth or water at a time can thin up heavy soup.
