DIRECTIONS

  1. In a very large pot, heat olive oil and saute the leeks and garlic for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add chopped cauliflower and saute for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the white beans, vegetable broth, and water into the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and cover and let simmer for about 30 minutes.
