Seasonal Delight: Quick Roasted Cauliflower Soup

 Makes 2 quarts

1 large head cauliflower, chopped into florets

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 large leek, cleaned and sliced

1 quart vegetable broth or chicken stock

Kosher salt and black pepper

1/4 cup heavy cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 425-degrees F. Place cauliflower on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, and season with 1 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste. Roast for 20 minutes or until tender and gently browned. In a large soup pot, heat butter and an additional tablespoon of oil.
