Chop and saute onion and leek with butter and olive oil in a large soup pot for about 10 minutes.

Chop cauliflower into small florets and add to mixture and saute for 2-3 more minutes.

Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.

Turn down heat and cover simmering for about 20 minutes (until veggies are soft).

Place soup contents in a food processor and blend.

Return to theĀ originalĀ soup pot and season to your liking with salt and pepper.
