About 5 years ago, I came across this recipe & started serving it in the restaurant. Everyone loved it.

You can also use wild leeks in this recipe.

It is also low in carbs for the healthy benefits!

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the olive oil & butter in large pot over med, high heat. Saute the leeks, carrots, celery, & minced garlic about 10 minutes, but do not allow to brown or burn, as the garlic will be bitter.
  2. Brown sausages in oil . Set aside.
  3. Stir vegetable broth in leek mixture & bring to boil.
  4. Reduce heat, cover & simmer for about 45 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat & blend the soup with an immersion blender, or hand mixer, if desired.
  6. Add the cut cauliflower & sausages. Season with garlic season & pepper.
  7. Mix in heavy cream & stir in until smooth. Cover with lid & let set about 20 minutes or so. This will cook the cauliflower so it is still in tact & not mushy.
  8. Serve with toasted garlic french bread.
