Bowl of hearty dairy-free leek soup topped with JF Shiitake Bacon, green onion and vegan cheddar.

Creamy Dairy Free Cauliflower Leek Soup

This reminds me of a potato cheddar soup and it’s so perfect for a chilly Saturday. Just like chili it’s all about the toppings; my JF Shiitake Bacon is a must. I also used JF Spicy Salt, Kosterina’s Spicy Red Pepper Olive Oil, vegan cheddar shreds, and green onion. So good! Serves 4 as a side.


1 Tbsp olive oil
2 leeks, sliced
2 shallots, sliced
1 garlic clove, chopped
Cauliflower, roasted
1 cup plain almond milk (I like Three Trees)
1 (5oz) container dairy free, plain yogurt (optional; I like Culina)
3 cups vegetable broth (I like Kettle & Fire)
JF Spicy Salt, to taste
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400º. On a prepared baking sheet toss your cauliflower florets in olive oil and JF Spicy Salt, coating well. Roast until slightly browned and crisp on the exterior.

Creamy Dairy Free Cauliflower Leek Soup

Step 1: In a large soup pot begin to warm the olive oil. Add in your sliced leeks, shallots, and garlic; allow that to become fragrant over the heat. Work in our roasted cauliflower, almond milk, and dairy-free yogurt; combine well.

Step 2: Pour in the vegetable broth, season with JF Spicy Salt and cracked black pepper.

Step 3: Turn up the heat slightly to bring it to a boil, then lower it and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Step 4: Once 15 minutes have elapsed, use your immersion blender to thicken the consistency. Then transfer to serving bowls and top with my JF Shiitake Bacon, JF Spicy Salt, green onion, vegan cheddar, and a drizzle of Kosterina’s Spicy Red Pepper Olive Oil. Enjoy!
