Is there anything more delicious & satisfying on a cold winter’s day than a bowl of creamy, hot soup? If you’ve never made your own then you’re in for a real treat because homemade always tastes better!
Soups exemplify the best principles of homemade cooking: Which is that when you start with quality ingredients, bought in season, then you really don’t need to use complicated recipes and just a few ingredients artfully combined taste perfect.
Cauliflower is a surprisingly good source of vitamin C (1 serve provides 77% of your daily needs!) so it’s great for boosting your immunity and protecting you from those winter colds, plus it’s also been shown to have cholesterol lowering benefits and gives great bang for its buck in terms of being filling whilst providing few calories. The immune boosting benefits are enhanced by the addition of leeks which belong to the same family as garlic & onions and have some of the most powerful antioxidants and antiviral properties.
Finally, we’re going to add potatoes – which gives this soup an incredible creaminess without needing to add calorie dense creams – and we’re leaving the skin on to save you time and for added fibre (so you get that nice sloooowwww release energy with none of the blood sugar spikes). Lastly this is another great dish that you can prepare once and then enjoy and reheat for days as it actually gets better with time (and also freezes well).
So savor this amazing soup with a piece of buttered toast and get ready to say “aaaggghhh!”
