  • 3 cups leeks washed, roughly chopped (~2 medium leeks)
  • 1 cauliflower medium, ~2 lb, chopped
  • 1 onion medium, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp ghee optional
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Wash the leeks well. Cut off the root end, then slice it down the middle lengthwise. Hold under running water and separate the leaves, rinsing well...especially the outermost leaves. Sandy soup is not delicious. Cut off the dark green top and save them for making stock. Chop the leeks roughly. Add to the Instant Pot insert.
  2. Cut the core out of the cauliflower and trim off any leaves. Roughly chop it. Add that to the Instant Pot.
  3. Add the onion, chicken broth, and ghee (optional) to the Instant Pot.
  4. Put the lid on the Instant Pot and set to 5 minutes Manual.
  5. When the timer goes off, either vent the steam (caution!) or allow the pressure to release naturally. 
  6. Allow to cool slightly, then add the coconut milk. Puree the mixture until smooth using a blender. Caution: You may need to do two or more batches so the blender doesn’t overflow. Be careful when blending hot liquids.
  7. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
