I think many of us are familiar with the traditional leek potato soup from our childhood. I’m remembering my mother cooking it for me with some crunchy homemade garlic bread.

Now, imagine the traditional potato leek soup in which we will add an extra flavor and creamy texture by adding the cauliflower into this mix.

The pureed cauliflower texture makes the soup so rich and heavy! Don’t forget — you can always add some extra calories with bacon or chicken.

What I love about the creamy soups is that the only limits are your imagination. You can add or remove any ingredients that you want.

You can add some extra cheese, or some other vegetables.

This soup will be good with anything!

  • 2 1/2 cups of Leek.
  • 5 cups of Cauliflower.
  • 3 1/2 cups of Potatoes.
  • 2 tablespoons of Parmesan. Or you can replace it with any other cheese you prefer. A cheese with a stronger aroma would also fit perfectly. For example: gorgonzolla.
  • 3 tablespoons of Sour Cream. You can replace it with whipped cream. If you use whipped cream, you will get a sweeter taste because sour cream offers a little acidity.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt, or to taste.

This creamy soup would go great with something crunchy. For the addition of taste, and texture add some croutons (maybe with garlic?) or an interesting combination would be some fried bacon. Also, you can serve it with a delicious focaccia Genovese.

It would also be good to sprinkle the soup at the end with an Extra-Virgin Olive Oil for extra flavor.

Today, I used only a little of black pepper and some croutons.
