Paleo ‘Potato’ and Leek Soup Recipe.

We love our paleo ‘potato’ cauli-leek soup because it boosts our immunity and warms our tummies! We chose not to eat white potato due to the high starch content plus they a very high in carbohydrates. This is a personal choice for us as we’ve come to realise feel best on high fat, low carbs diets… unless we do a MASSIVE workout!! Ahh love this soup!

Always merrymaking,

  1. Just made this soup and just gotta say it’s yummy!!!!!
    So I highly recommend this soup. Mmmmmm

  2. YAY! I’m so glad you mentioned the health benefits of turmeric! Coming from a fiji-indian background turmeric is like in everything!! And I can attest to the health benefits of it!! It’s also really good for the skin!!! YAY!

  3. Love the list! I also add turmeric to my eggs in the mornings, it is wonderful! The soup looks so tasty, will have to make it some time 🙂

  4. Hi Neetara! That’s awesome! We will have to get some fiji-indian inspired recipes off you to try out! Yummo! e & c

  5. I made this last night. Quick, easy and delicious. And it was supprisingly easy to find the almond milk.. Something I havent heard off.

  6. Made this the first day of fall and it was perfect! I used veggie broth for the water and added a little bit more bacon (can’t go wrong there!!). OMG, it was fabulous, even better the next day 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Hi Heather, we are so super glad to hear that you liked the soup! The flavour is delish right?! Keep us updated on any other merrymaker recipes you create 🙂 e & c

  8. Hey,
    Im keen to make this but am a bit confused. Its called potatoe and leek soup but there isn’t any potatoes in the ingredients list?
    P.S love your work girls!

  9. Hi Rachel! Hehe white potatoes aren’t classified paleo – so we call this ‘potato’ and leek soup! The cauliflower makes it all creamy like the potatoes usually do! You must give it a whirl! 🙂 e + c

  10. I’m a pretty new convert to this lifestyle – only about 4 months or so – so I’m still pretty sceptical about whether “new” food subs can taste as good as what I have grown up eating. I work nights so tend to try and pick lighter evening meals so I don’t want to curl up and take a nap after dinner lol So today I thought I’d push my boat out and try this recipe. Now, I seem to have ADD when it comes to following recipes – they always start the same and then get tweaked along the way. So please forgive me 🙂 First tweak was using homemade chicken stock – just cos I had that luxury. Second was putting cashews into the soup at the same time as the cauliflower. Third, and this is the tweak I like the most for me, I added some cumin. Gave it a whole different basenote to the flavour. I gotta say, yes I was naughty and changed things along the way, but the “shape” of the recipe was yours and the end result – well, I actually swore because it tasted that good! It’s extremely creamy to taste without the heaviness of cream 🙂 LOVE it <3 and thanks
