In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil and melt butter and add the sliced leeks. Saute, stirring a few times, for about 8-10 minutes until very soft and translucent.

2

Add potato

Add the potato dices and sauté for another 2-3 minutes, stirring every now and again.

3

Add cauliflower and broth

5

Add the cauliflower and pour in chicken broth. Bring to a boil.

Cook soup

Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer on low heat, uncovered, for about 20-25 minutes until the vegetables are well cooked.

Blend soup

Once the vegetables are cooked, transfer soup to a food processor and blend until extremely smooth. Return to the pot.

Flatten the reserved leek on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to slice into thin strips, lengthwise. Set capers aside.

Fry leeks

In a small saucepan, heat oil to 360 °F. Once oil is hot, fry leek in small batches for about 10-20 seconds while continuously stirring until golden brown and evenly fried. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel and repeat in batches with remaining leek slices.

Lightly sprinkle leeks with salt and set aside to cool until extremely crispy.
