Smooth and mild, this cauliflower and leek soup is just right for wintery days.



  • 1 leek (sliced thinly)
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 100g butter
  • 1 celery stick (diced)
  • 500g cauliflower (chopped)
  • 2 medium potatoes (chopped)
  • 3 cups veggie stock
  • 200ml cream


  1. Heat the butter in a large pot over low heat.
  2. Sauté the leek and the garlic 10 minutes until soft but not browned.
  3. Add the cauliflower, potatoes, and stock. Bring to the boil then turn down to low and let simmer until the vegetables are soft, about 20-30 minutes.
  4. Blend the soup with a stick blender and check for seasoning.
  5. Add the cream just before serving.
  6. Serve with a swirl of extra-virgin olive oil, and a grinding of black pepper.


Fun to dress up with croutons, fresh herbs, crumbled stilton, or parmesan and chilli flakes. Yum!
