  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • 3-4 cups of homemade veggie broth
  • Tablespoon of olive oil
  • Dash of sea salt
    How to make:
  • Chop up cauliflower and put into bowl
  • Smash the garlic cloves
  • Slice up leeks and smashed garlic and put into bowl with cauliflower
  • Pour olive oil over the veggies with salt and toss to coat
  • Put on a baking sheet into the oven at about 425 degrees for 40-45 minutes until they start to brown
  • Heat saucepan with some olive oil and put roasted veggies on pan
  • Cover with veggie broth
  • Allow to boil
  • Either use a hand blender and blend down in the pan or add to food processor to blend down until smooth

    Why do you only use the bottom part of the leek? I’m so making this for Meatless Monday. Looks delish.

    The bottom part roasts better. The top part would wilt away to nothing.
