Cauliflower, Leek and Potato soup- Frugal Friday

cauliflower leek and potato soup

If I had opened our vegetable box as a kid, and seen cauliflower looking right back at me- I may well have wept a little.

At the very least I probably would have silently gagged.

Not now though. Now, when I see a little cauliflower peeking from a corner, in the Foodconnect box I do a little happy dance. I can’t get enough of it. Teamed up with some leek and potatoes also from the box, (and locally grown) you have yourself an easy peasy seasonal dinner.Β 

Cauliflower, Leek and Potato Soup

one chopped large leek

3 chopped large potatoes

half a head of a large cauliflower

1 vegetable stock cube

about 500mls water

salt and pepper to taste

Saute leeks in a couple of good slugs of olive oil, then the rest of the ingredients and cook until soft. Then blitz, with a hand held mixer.

Serve with pangritataΒ and capsicum chilli sauce.

(Remarkably similar to last years cauliflower and potato soup…that’s seasonal eating for you!)

  1. I’m the same – as a child, cauliflower was close to evil, that little bit worse than the equally dreaded broccoli. Now I am obsessed with broccoli and find cauliflower so versatile. It’s probably good that some things change πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous soup!

  2. I’ve always loved things like cauliflower and even broccoli in chowder-type soups; it seems to lift their flavour and texture somehow. This one sounds so delicious and warming! I think I’d like it. πŸ™‚

  3. cauliflower seems one of my favourite vegies lately – so many ways to eat it

    BTW – I have a first photo on my blog of my sourdough bread in my In My Kitchen post – will let you know when I post more about it – have my second loaf underway!

  4. I’ve been a cauli lover from way back. Have you ever seen The Darling Buds of May? (with a very young Catherine Zeta Jones). One of the twins (either Zinnia or Petunia) piped up when asked what vegetables she wanted with dinner “cauliflower cheese and baked beans.” It’s always stuck in my mind, because cauliflower cheese would have been my first pick too. Now I like it in curries, in Jamie Oliver’s cauliflower risotto and in soups. It’s just a great veg!

  5. Beautiful recipe… such a gorgeous way to use the abundance of cauliflower that we have at the moment! I love the addition of the pangritata and the capsicum sauce also. Yum! Trying this soon xx
