Serves 2 hungry people

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil, Brain Octane Oil or MCT Oil
  • 1 leek
  • ¼ cauliflower
  • 1 small head of broccoli
  • Fresh thyme to taste, we used the leaves of 8-10 sprigs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3-5 cups of filtered water

Method

  1. Roughly chop the leek, broccoli and cauliflower and add it to a large saucepan along with the butter and oil. Sauté until the veggies start to turn a light golden colour.

  2. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, thyme and 3 cups of water.

  3. Allow this to simmer for at least 20 minutes. Check the veggies to see if they are soft and falling apart when pricked with a fork, if so remove the saucepan from the heat.

  4. Puree the soup using a handheld stick blender. If you like you’re a little runnier, then try adding ½ a cup of water or bone broth at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

  5. When ready, ladle into bowls and enjoy with a slice of Kultured Wellness Diversity Dough.
