Cauliflower Leek Soup


In a household filled with kids, cheese soups are a favorite. This one was gone so quickly and when I realized the kids thought there was cheese in it I knew why. I told them there was none and they were all surprised, but asked for seconds anyway. Guess that means this one is a keeper. It's another super-simple one and made really quickly.
