Cauliflower & Leek Soup
A tasty soup to warm the cockles of your soul on a cold old Winter's day, or night.


2 litres Water
1 Smoked Ham Hock
Tablespoon Himalayan Rock Salt
Large Cauliflower Head, cut into florets
2 Leeks, sliced
5 Cloves Garlic, sliced
Salt & Pepper
Jersey Cream (if you are lucky enough to find it, if not, normal cream is fine)


Add water, ham hock and salt to a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for roughly an hour.
Remove ham hock and allow it to cool. Once it has cooled remove all the meat and toss all those delicious hammy bits back into the stock.
While the stock is simmering you can prepare the vegetables. In a frypan melt butter and then add in garlic and leeks. Cook until leeks become soft, stirring often. Add in some more butter and your cauliflower and a good sprinkle of salt and pepper and then stir regularly to soften slightly. This may take around 15 - 20 minutes, depending on the size of your frypan.
Place all of your frypan ingredients into the soup stock and return to the boil. Simmer for around 30 minutes.
Add in the cream to taste and then blend with a stick whizz or something of the like until your soup is a smooth, creamy consistency.
