This Paleo Cauliflower Leek Soup is AIP Friendly, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Whole 30 compliant, Keto & Vegan Friendly. It is so easy to make (which I love) & so tasty!  You can double this recipe for a larger crowd or for having leftovers for later. It also freezes well. 

This Cauliflower Leek Soup has become one of my family’s favorites. I hope you enjoy. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp EVOO, Bacon grease, or Avocado Oil (I used bacon grease)
  • 2-3 leeks, white and light green parts only – sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of minced garlic
  • 1 head organic cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 4+ cups chicken bone broth (enough to cover the cauliflower) I make my own. (use vegetable stock for vegan)
  • 1 can of coconut milk (remove the water & only use the cream, may have to refrigerate to separate)
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg (optional) (omit of AIP)
  • 1/4 -1/3 c. Nutritional Yeast (optional, this gives it a “cheesy” taste & lots of B vitamins)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Add scallions, chives, bacon pieces, or parsley for garnish (optional)

  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Transfer soup in batches to a blender or food processor and puree transferring pureed soup back to the large pot, or use an immersion blender right in the pan (this is what I do),

Tips:

  • This soup is easily made vegetarian/vegan by substituting vegetable broth for the bone broth & using EVOO or Avocado Oil instead of bacon grease. 
  • Freezes well!
  • If the soup is too thick, add more chicken bone broth or water.
  • Can add 1 chopped potato with cauliflower. (not AIP or Keto)
  • I keep these bacon bits on hand when I don’t want to fry some up.
