Prep time: 15 min • Cook time: 25 min • Yield: 4 to 6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons ghee or pasture-raised butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 leeks, white and pale green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups homemade chicken bone broth or Dr. Kellyann Bone Broth
  • 1/2 cup canned unsweetened full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic or pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder, blended with 1 tablespoon water, plus more if needed

In a large stockpot, melt ghee over medium-high heat. Add garlic and leeks, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring, for 6 to 8 minutes, until softened. 

Raise heat to medium-high and add bone broth, coconut milk, cauliflower, thyme, salt, and pepper. When soup begins to simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until cauliflower is cooked through. 

Purée with an immersion blender, blender, or food processor until smooth and creamy. Return to stockpot and stir in arrowroot mixture. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, until soup thickens, adding more arrowroot if a thicker soup is desired. Serve warm, garnish with freshly ground black pepper.
