I hope you all had lovely holidays ! My Christmas was fabulous. I could watch my girl for hours opening her presents. Such a great time.I know that all you want to read is what makes this soup so great to detox your body. I am sorry if I first need to share with you my feelings today. Tomorrow is a big day for me. I will finally meet him. My baby boy. After 38 weeks I have been scheduled for a C-section to bring Luka to the world. I am very excited and so scared too. Some people think that C-section is ‘easy’ compared to natural birth. I don’t think there is an easy way to give birth. Birth is always a scary process as we never know what can happens, what we expect! Anyway that is my last live post on the blog. I will keep feeding the blog during the next 4 months with recipes I wrote in advance for you. So today I am sharing another yummy soup that  I planned to freeze and eat as a light dinner after baby is born.

Leek Cauliflower Soup – my secret to a flavorsome low carb soup

I love this simple leek cauliflower soup. Especially because it is light and don’t use starchy vegetables. My secret for a tasty soup with low carb vegetables is to roast them first with shallots, garlic, olive oil and spices. It is a very simple step that adds lots of flavor to any low carb soup. I love to use vegetable stock as a base for this soup but chicken stock is a great option too Leek and cauliflower are both very low carb vegetables. They contains few calories as well and they are both amazing source of fibers, vitamins A and C. The texture is not very thick or creamy. It is a light soup with lots of spices flavor perfect for a light family dinner. I simply drizzle virgin olive oil on top of my bowl. Emma loves to add grated mozzarella. I guess all kids loves melted string cheese in their soup and it is a great source of calcium for them.

Ingredients

To roast vegetables

  • 3 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 2 leek remove the very green top part, trim feet, roughly chop
  • 1 small onion peeled, roughly chopped
  • 1 large cauliflower head chopped into small florets (about 8 cups)

Soup

  • 5 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup heavy cream or coconut cream if vegan
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and smashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F)
  • Spread the chopped vegetables: leek, cauliflower, onion, onto a baking tray in a single layer.
  • Drizzle the olive oil onto the vegetables and toss everything together until the vegetables are well coated.
  • Roast vegetables for 20-30 minutes, tossing vegetables every 5-10 minutes. The vegetables must be tender enough to be blended after the roasted process.
  • Meanwhile pour vegetable stock with thyme and salt into a very large pot (must fit all your vegetables!) and bring to a simmer.
  • Once vegetables have roasted through place them into the pot with stock.
  • Add in heavy cream and sour cream.
  • Blend with immersion blender until it forms a creamy smooth soup. Adjust the quantity of stock to reach the desired consistency. The more stock you add the more liquid the soup will be.
  • Serve with 2-4 tablespoons of grated cheddar per bowl or a simple drizzle of olive oil and fresh herbs.
  • Store up to 3 days in the fridge or freeze for later in airthight containers. Always wait for the soup to reach room temperature before packing in freezing boxes.
