Creamy on the bottom, crispy on the top, this simple soup has lots of flavor without lots of effort!
It’s versatile too: make it vegan by swapping in veggie broth and crisping up thinly sliced mushrooms in place of the prosciutto.
It gets better as it sits in the fridge, perfect for that breakfast or lunch you forgot to plan for!
Like all good soup, it’s giving you some goods. Use homemade bone broth for gut healing help and pile in the cauliflower, it delivers a surprise dose of vitamin C for warding off colds and flu.
Gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and delicious!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • ½ tsp Avocado Oil
  • 2 Leeks (trimmed, roughly chopped)
  • ½ Yellow Onion (chopped)
  • ½ head Cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • 4 cups Organic Chicken Broth
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • 4 ozs Prosciutto (sliced into small pieces)
  • 1¼ cups Organic Coconut Milk (full fat, canned)
  • ¼ cup Parsley (chopped)
  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the avocado oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the leeks and onion and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the cauliflower, chicken broth and sea salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 15 to 18 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and cook for 3 minutes per side or until crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the coconut milk to the soup and stir to incorporate. Blend the soup with a stick blender or in a blender. Ladle into bowls and top with crispy prosciutto and parsley. Serve and enjoy!
Leftovers Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. Freeze for up to three months.

More Flavor: Add black pepper or other herbs/spices to the soup.

No Prosciutto: Omit, or use crispy bacon instead.

Make It Veggie: Use vegetable broth and omit the prosciutto.

Foods that Heal: A one-cup serving of cauliflower contains almost all of the recommended vitamin C, helping reduce inflammation, build immunity, and protect the body from harmful bacteria, infections and common colds.
