This delicious creamy vegan cauliflower leek soup is a perfect comforting soup. It’s a light and healthy low-calorie soup that’s simple to make in just under an hour!
You won’t believe that when you taste this healthy cauliflower leek soup, it’s actually made without any cream. How can it taste so creamy without being made with any cream?
Well, it’s the blending of the softened cauliflower and potato that gives it it’s creamy consistency.
Then its the leeks, garlic and thyme that give this soup its unique and delicious flavour!
This is definitely a soup recipe that you’ll want to stick in your back pocket for colder day’s to come.
Talking of colder days to come, as I sit here typing up this cauliflower leek soup recipe the weather outside is pretty horrible. To say the least!
It’s grey and wet and not really a day that you would want to venture outside for.
I think that the weather might have affected how I’ve arranged my blogging schedule of new recipes over the next few weeks too.
There’s lots more soups like this one and hearty casserole bakes like Tuesday’s Sausage Pasta Bake with Baked Beans to come!
Still, sometimes you can’t beat a good bowl of delicious hot soup. Especially if you serve it with hunks of fresh homemade wholemeal bread that you can use to mop up every last drop with.
If the weather really does let us down, there’s still plenty more simple soups here with minimal ingredients like this cauliflower leek soup to keep us going until the warmer times arrive again!
For example have you tried :-
Scottish leek and potato soup – a simple healthier version of the classic Scottish soup. Still as deliciously creamy and smooth tasting as the original but healthier as again, it’s not made with butter or cream!
Leek sweet potato and rosemary soup – this is an addictive soup. Another delicious creamy comforting soup. Plus it’s really simple and quick to make too, in less than one hour!
Cheesy cauliflower and white bean soup – this soup is based on the classic flavour of cauliflower cheese with added beans. It’s low in fat but packed with bags of flavour and makes a great, quick healthy lunchtime staple!
Soup is one thing I’ll never get fed up of, seeing as there’s so many different flavour combinations.
Coming Next Week on Neil’s Healthy Meals
Lady Lynne and I are off to Braemar this weekend to stay at Rucksacks Bunkhouse and for some more hill walking.
If you thought that we’d had enough hill walking what with just being back from climbing Kilimanjaro you’d be wrong. We can’t get enough. Ha ha!
Actually we’ll probably just take it easy and have an amble about some hills and do some walking rather than climbing. Also, we have a nice meal booked at the Braemar Lodge on Saturday night to look forward to as well.
Talking of hillwalking and Kilimanjaro, I’ve got the first set of photographs and write up of our recent trip coming on Tuesday. I’ve split the trip up into 6 posts. Starting with Climbing Kilimanjaro Day 1.
I hope to have a Kilimanjaro post every second Tuesday. That will take us right up to Christmas but still mean there will be plenty of room for Christmas recipes to be enjoyed too!
Next Wednesday’s post is dedicated to World Porridge Day 2018. If you’re a regular subscriber you may have seen these posts in previous years. This blog supports Mary’s Meals and I hope that you’ll be able to contribute to that worthwhile charity too, details of which you’ll find in that post.
Then on Thursday, a new breakfast. It’s a new tasty overnight quinoa apple and banana bircher muesli. Probably the last cold breakfast for this year as with the way things are going we’ll all be needing hot breakfasts soon! 😆
Well anyway I hope you folks have an amazing weekend. Catch you next week!This cauliflower and leek soup is a light and healthy low-calorie soup recipe that's easy to make and ready in just under an hour.Click To Tweet

Creamy Vegan Cauliflower Leek Soup Recipe
There’s plenty to go round with 6 portions from this recipe. And you can freeze this cauliflower leek soup easily too.
I’d love to hear what you think of my recipe in the comments below and please do rate my recipe 5* if you like it! 🙂
- Low calorie cooking spray
- 3 leeks chopped
- 1 large cauliflower stalk removed and broken into florets
- 3 cloves garlic crushed
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1 large potato peeled and diced
- 1 L vegetable stock
- Freshly ground salt and pepper
- 1 tbsp chopped chives
- Spray the bottom of a large saucepan about 7 to 8 times. Turn the heat on high underneath, then when the oil starts to bubble, turn the heat lower.
- Add the leeks, cauliflower and garlic. Sauté, stirring constantly for about 8 minutes until soft, but not burnt, or you will taint the taste of the soup.
- Add the dried thyme and stir in, then add the potato and sauté, again stirring for a further 2 minutes.
- Add the stock, bring the mixture to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes until the vegetables are soft then remove from the heat.
- Either using a stick blender or an upright blender, blitz the soup to a pulp and return it to the saucepan.
- Season to taste with the salt and pepper.
- Serve garnished with the freshly chopped chives.
