Cauliflower Leek Soup

This cream soup is so good. It is another recipe I got off of the Weight Watchers message boards years ago. If you like cauliflower you will love it plain. If you long for baked potato soup load it up with the optional garnishes. It tastes just like baked potato soup without any guilt. I photographed it with the garnishes. It looked a little undressed plain.





Cauliflower Leek Soup

Serves 8

1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
2 small leeks, cleaned and cut into rings
4 cups chicken broth
1 Tbsp light butter
1 small onion, chopped
Salt and white pepper, to taste

Heat butter in pot, add in onions and leeks. Heat until tender, but not browned. Add in cauliflower and broth. Simmer, covered until cauliflower is cooked [about 15 min]. Puree in the pot with an immersion or stick blender. Or pulse soup in a blender in two or three batches, until smooth. Return to pan and season with salt and white pepper.

WW Points Plus: 1

Optional Garnishes: 2% cheddar cheese, light sour cream, bacon bits, and chives.
