Cauliflower and Leek Soup

I am sure you have all heard by now but it has been FREEZING in Atlanta lately ~ and by freezing in Atlanta I mean temperatures in the teens and even a little bit of snow and ice!! We really can't take this much longer!

The best thing for dinner in this type of weather is soup!

Cauliflower and Leek Soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 leeks, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large head cauliflower, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup of vegetable broth
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup heavy cream
3 slices of bacon

Wash and cut the cauliflower,leeks. Peel and cut garlic. Toss cauliflower, leeks and garlic in olive oil. Sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven at 400degrees for 20 - 10 minutes or until veggies are tender.

Let cool. Then add cauliflower, leeks and garlic to a food processor with the broth and cream.

Pulse until it the texture you like. I left my soup with a little bit of texture. Place the soup into a pan and heat thoroughly. Cook 3 slices of bacon. Then pour soup into bowls and top with chopped bacon.

Yum, you are going to enjoy this soup!
