AIP Paleo Chilled Cauliflower Leek Soup Recipe

Growing up, I ate hot soup, mainly gumbo, even when it was 90+ degrees outside.  It never bothered me, or made me feel hotter than I already was.  Once I was grown, I decided to branch out a bit. I tried and loved gazpacho.  My appreciation of chilled soup began.

A few weeks ago, I was experimenting with some ideas for chilled soups.  One of my favorite hot soups is cauliflower leek soup.  So, I thought I’d try it chilled.  Mmm, it was so refreshing and delicious.
