Leek and cauliflower hot bowl

This soup brought us back to life the other day, it was pretty cold outside and we needed something satisfying that wasn’t overly heavy. This certainly did the trick! It’s a fast bowl of warmth and energy, which can be made with just a few ingredients from the kitchen cupboard in around 30 minutes.

To make enough for four people:

1 cauliflower head

2 leeks

1 white onion

2 cloves of garlic

1 tablespoon of coconut oil (olive oil is fine too)

4 cups of water

1 teaspoon of chilli powder

Salt and pepper

1 handful of mixed seeds

1 handful of coriander

Roughly chop the onion and garlic. Gently fry them in the oil in a large pot for 5 minutes, stir regularly. Add the chilli powder and fry for a further minute.

Chop the cauliflower and leek and add them to the pot followed by 4 cups of water and a pinch of salt and pepper to season. Place a lid on the pot and cook everything together for around 20 minutes on a medium heat.

Transfer your soup to the blender, or use a hand held machine to blend the soup. Serve and add the chopped coriander.

Quickly toast your mixed seeds in a dry frying pan and add to the soup. Enjoy!
