Directions for: Creamy Cauliflower Soup Heightened with Aged Cheddar, Pancetta, and Sauteed Leeks

Ingredients

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

6 slices Pancetta, diced

1 leek, thinly sliced

6 cup organic chicken stock

1 cauliflower, chopped into bite sized pieces

2 russets, diced

1 bay leaf

¾ cup aged cheddar cheese

pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper

fresh chives, minced

Directions

1. In a pot, heat the extra virgin olive oil over medium. Add the sliced pancetta to the pot and sauté it until crispy. Remove the cooked pancetta from the pot using a slotted spoon and set it aside. In the pancetta oil, sauté the leeks for a few minutes until soft.

2. Deglaze the pot with organic chicken stock. Add the cauliflower, russets, bay leaf to the stock and simmer for 15-20 minutes until veggies are fork-tender. Remove the pot from the heat. Fish out about one cup of cauliflower florets and potatoes and set them aside.

3. Puree the soup using a hand blender, and then put the cauliflower and potatoes pieces back into the pot. Add the aged cheddar, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Turn the heat down to medium-low and whisk until the cheese is melted.

4. Serve topped with crispy pancetta and fresh chives.
