Creamless Cauliflower Leek Soup

Creamless Cauliflower Leek Soup created by stayreal2me

This is a really rich and great tasting soup that does not contain cream. If you want to add a cup of cream to it to up the decadence factor, you can. It's easy to make with an immersion blender.

    Wonderful. I was distracted while making this last night (never happens, right? ;) and prepared 1/2 a cup of lemon juice instead of 1/2 a lemon. Adding it to the soup I thought, "wait a minute" and only put in about 1/4 cup. Well, it was still delicious. In fact, I think I'll always add the juice of a whole lemon. We don't care for thyme so I subbed in a new-to-me herb Winter Savory. I think any mild herb would work well. It's not the most beautifully colored soup I've ever made, but it's so good, healthy and satisfying, who cares? Thanks Katzen.

    We received a leek from our CSA and since I have only made one other recipe using a leek I looked for something that I had all the ingredients for and this fit the bill, I only had one so it really made one serving but boy was it good, now I will need to go out and buy the leeks just to make this soup. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Easy to make and yummy! I sauteed in a little olive oil and added broth, skipping the butter. At the end, I wasn't planning on adding the lemon it was fine without. I couldn't imagine how it would taste together so I tried a little in a bowl with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. The lemon really made the flavors blend. I added it to the rest of the soup. My family loved the taste and the creamy texture. I did not need to add oatmeal.

    Made this for dinner to go with pan fried oysters and calamari. DELICIOUS! Didn't need to add cream or oatmeal, it was just perfect. Everyone (including my 2 kids) loved it! Will definitely make again! I had everything on hand thanks to our CSA box this week.
