I loved this recipe! Because I have carnivores in my household, I added some Italian sausage to the soup and it was delicious! I love how creamy it is without any dairy. The lemon juice gave me pause but it adds a nice, unexpected lightness to the soup.

A bit too lemony, will add less next time. I also did not add thyme.

Terrible, very bitter from the leeks and lacks flavour. The almonds do not go at all with this recipe either.

Alright, was a little bitter

Yummy! Would modify needs more flavor

It was very bland. It tasted more like over cooked cauliflower. We have to add lots of spice.

Made it for the family as I’m not big on “onion-y” flavor. But, I liked it! The leeks ended up mild with a bit of a celery taste.

We weren't all that fond of this. It certainly wasn't a substitute for potato leek soup. In addition the lemon gave it a citrus flavor that didn't work well with the cauliflower. I won't make this again.

It wasn't bad, but not my favorite. As another reviewer suggested, I used veggie stock instead of some of the water. I would make it again if I had some leeks I needed to use up, but I think I'd adjust it to make it a bit creamier, Maybe add in some potatoes or cashews to purée with it?

Great way to get rid of your leeks and cauliflower before they turn. I used a red onion, I would use a white onion instead.

Very good. Used 3 garlic and vege stock instead of water.

I really liked this! My husband and daughter who's 11 liked it too! It was creamy and tasty. The only thing was in the directions it said to add half of the thyme, almonds, salt and pepper, but there was no amount listed. so that was a bit unclear. I like it all explained in exact amounts to me, however this was really good!!!

Brought it to a potluck dinner and everyone loved it. Especially the toasted pumpkin seeds. Will do again!

Ok....maybe I did something wrong but I found it erred slightly too much on the leek side and was a bit bland. I added coconut milk and ground coriander seed and gave it a Thai flavour.

Lovely summer soup, wonderful for an afternoon lunch or outdoor dinner party. Nutty and bright and super easy. Will absolutely make this again!

I really loved this soup. The combination of the leeks and cauliflower was fantastic! I would definitely make this soup again.
