  • 3 leeks, thinly sliced with their green parts removed and discarded (wash thoroughly before using)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into florets

  • 1 small pear, peeled, cored and cut into chunks

  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence

  • Salt and pepper to taste


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, saute the leeks in the olive oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add 1 cup vegetable broth, 1 cup water and the cauliflower, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until cauliflower is tender, about 15 minutes. Add the pear and simmer another 2 minutes. Drain the leeks, cauliflower and pear. In a bowl using a hand blender, or in a blender, puree the mixture with about 1/4 cup of vegetable broth until very smooth. Add more broth if necessary for texture. Add the herbs and stir well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
