Ingredients

HERB CROUTONS

Method

1.

Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced (200°C conventional). To make herb croutons, toss ciabatta with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and thyme and toss again. Spread on an oven tray and bake for 10-15 minutes until crisp and golden.

2.

Cook leeks in butter until softened. Add cauliflower and cook for 5 minutes. Add stock and milk, bring to a simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes until cauliflower is really soft.

3.

Use a stick blender to puree soup until smooth. Gently reheat, then stir in cheeses until melted. Serve topped with croutons.
