This Dairy Free Creamy Sausage And Greens Soup is cozy, warming, and so easy to make.
  • 2 leeks, thinly sliced and cleaned well
  • salt and pepper
  • 7 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 3 link sausages, casings removed (any kind you like)
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp dried red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • 6 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 20 oz cauliflower florets (I used frozen)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach (use more if it will fit in your pot) (Feel free to substitute and dark leafy green)
  1. Heat oil over medium heat in soup pot.
  2. Add leeks, seasoned with a little salt, and saute until softened a bit.
  3. Stir in garlic cloves, thyme, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Sauce for 1 minute.
  4. In a small skillet, cook the sausage until browned, breaking up with a wooden spoon. Set aside.
  5. Add bone broth, cashews, and cauliflower to the leek mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Bring to a slight boil, then lower the heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft.
  7. Transfer the leek mixture to your blender and blend until smooth. This may have to be done in 2 batches. Note: remove the lid from the blender and cover with a clean dish towel, making sure to hold the towel tightly to act as a lid, so the steam can escape and you don't burn yourself.
  8. Pour the soup back into the pot and stir in the cooked sausage and the spinach. Heat over low heat and stir until the soup is hot and the spinach is wilted.
  9. Ladle into bowls and enjoy.
