Green cauliflower is a hybrid combination of cauliflower and broccoli. It's available at many of the large super markets, and tastes great. It has a sweeter taste to it than regular cauliflower and is super nutritious. The sharp cheese and the leeks combine with the green cauliflower to give the soup a great flavor. The jalapeno adds the slightest bite (because it's seeded). For those who swear they'll never go near cauliflower or broccoli, we have a surprise for you!
