Learn to love leeks with each spoonful of this belly-warming soup!

Of all of the vegetables in the garden, there’s a reason I chose to feature leeks in this recipe; they’re delicious when used correctly and offer a host of benefits to your digestive system.

Roasted Cauliflower and Leeks

Resembling an oversized scallion or green onion, leeks are an incredible source of soluble dietary fiber which, when consumed, feeds the good bacteria in your gut. This good bacteria then helps reduce inflammation and supports overall digestive health! Pretty impressive for such a simple vegetable, right?
