Creamy Cauliflower Potato Leek soup

This warm comforting soup is perfect for those cold winter nights. It’s really simple to make and you can enjoy it for lunch the next day with a roasted veggie sandwich or quinoa salad! It’s always important to use organic vegetables especially for onions and potatoes since they grow underground and can soak up pesticides and herbicides more readily.
