I LOVE soup! I gotta say, Steph over at Stupid Easy Paleo is a total genius. Her Creamy Leek Soup is out of this world delicious, and tastes like it’s made with potatoes and cheese (but has neither in it). You’d never, ever guess that it’s actually made with cauliflower! I’ve made it several times; it’ll fool even the most suspicious eater! It’s also unbelievably easy to make, and is great to have on hand in your fridge. If you haven’t already, you must try it! SO good!

Stupid Easy Paleo’s original recipe inspired me to recreate one of my favorites, cream of broccoli soup! All I did was swap out the leeks for broccoli, added some garlic, and it was perfect!

I adapted the Creamy Leek Soup recipe from Stupid Easy Paleo by subbing 8 cups of chopped broccoli & 3 minced garlic cloves, instead of the leeks. Time to make some soup!

Ingredients –

  • 8-10 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 1 medium-sized cauliflower, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1-2 tbsp ghee (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions –

For the full list of instructions, click HERE. I followed the instructions exactly, just using broccoli instead of leeks, and adding garlic. I also used an immersion blender instead of a regular blender, but either works great! Enjoy!!

      Couldn’t agree more! Working on a recipe for an alfredo sauce that uses mostly cauliflower 🙂

    Kristen, this is so good! So simple, too. Believe it or not, I hate vegetables and will do anything to make them attractive to eat. Having chosen the Paleo diet several months ago, hating vegetables is not a good thing :-/ I have done very well though, roasting, baking, steaming everything I can think of. I love Paleo, and I feel great. Thank you for making a difference.

    Hi, this looks fabulous and I’m a newbie to Paleo/Gluten Free but love to cook so excited I found this site. I’m have a dinner party and I didn’t see how many servings this made and is it garnished with bacon and scallions? thanks so much 🙂

      Hi Cheryl, so sorry that I’m just now seeing your comment! This makes approximately 4-5 servings 🙂

  18. […] Creamy Broccoli Soup from Living Loving Paleo – Creamy, Cauliflower, vegan (omit ghee) This soup combines cauliflower, broccoli and coconut milk to create a creamy, thick soup recipe. Cauliflower is used as a substitute for potatoes in this soup. The soup includes onions for flavor as well as bacon as an optional garnish. This soup was originally included in our broccoli soup roundup but seemed appropriate to mention here as well. […]
