Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings 4 large bowls


  • Immersion blender or regular blender (optional)


  • 2 large leeks - chopped and cleaned
  • 2 cloves of garlic - crushed
  • 1 small head of cauliflower - chopped in florets
  • 2 cups white Yukon gold potatoes (or Russet) - peeled and diced in bite-size
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 15 oz coconut milk - unsweetened, low- or full-fat
  • 3 cups veggie broth
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • In a large pot, start by cooking the leeks on medium-high heat until browned stirring often, about 5 minutes. Use a small amount of oil or water to prevent the veggies from sticking to the pot.
  • Then, add the garlic, cauliflower, potatoes, dried thyme, chives and a good pinch of salt. Stir and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the veggie broth and coconut milk, stir well and cover. Cook until the veggies are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Then, using a immersion blender, blend some of the soup while leaving lots of pieces intact. You can also transfer some of the soup (about 3 cups) to a blender, blend to smooth and transfer back to the pot.
  • Add the shredded carrots to the pot, taste to adjust the seasoning and keep cooking for another 5 minutes or so. Serve warm.



  • Be sure to clean properly the leeks as they hide dirt easily. Check out the blog post for more tips on how to clean them.
  • Keep leftovers in an air-tight container for up to 5 days. Simply reheat in the microwave or on the stove.
  • Serve with dinner rolls or crackers and sprinkle with ground black pepper, fresh herbs or croutons.
