Creamy Cauliflower Leek Soup (AIP/Paleo/Whole 30)

It’s mid October and we’ve already had a snowfall. You know what this means, right? It’s official soup weather!

When I first made this soup, I was just throwing things in a pot and hoping it would work out and taste good, because for the most part, that is how I roll. Mom of three here! To my delight, it turned out delicious and I knew I needed to repeat and share with you all.

What I love about this recipe:

Simple: You only need four ingredients (six if you count salt and the optional bacon) and 30 minutes to create this creamy soup!  

Large batch:  This recipe makes a large batch. You will have plenty leftover to warm up throughout the week OR freeze for another time.

Comforting: I used to love when my Mom made cauliflower soup when I was a kid. Food memories always bring me comfort but it’s hard not to feel at ease with a big bowl of warm soup on a cool fall day, amirite?

Healing: bone broth and veggies, the good stuff our bodies need!

  1. Do you think this would work in the Instant Pot?

    • I haven’t tried it in the Instant Pot yet but I’m sure it would work. I would put less broth and cook it for less time, maybe ten minutes? Hope this helps!

    I made this today and it’s amazing! I couldn’t find white sweet potatoes so I just used regular ones.

  3. I made this yesterday and it’s really good! I used probably about twice as many leeks since I had lots.

  4. I’m making this right now. I added 3 cloves of garlic
