Ingredients: (serves 4)
2 tsp oil
3 leeks sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large cauliflower, chopped into large florets
1.5 litres (6 cups) vegetable or chicken stock – ideally home-made
Heat oil in a large saucepan or stockpot, then add leeks and garlic. Cook over medium heat until soft. Add cauliflower and stock. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15–20 minutes or until cauliflower is very soft. Blend in a blender – do this in batches if necessary – or with a stick blender.
