Step 1: Prep the cauliflower

Chop cauliflower into florets and place on a baking sheet. Coat with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, and Salt & Pepper Tableside Seasoning. Roast in a 400 degree oven for about 20 min., or until golden brown.

Step 2: Prep the vegetables

Heat remaining oil in a heavy pot over medium heat. Add leeks and potatoes, season generously with Salt & Pepper Tableside Seasoning, and allow vegetables to sweat/soften for at least 10 to 15 min.

Step 3: Make the soup

Add roasted cauliflower and wine to the pot and allow wine to reduce until it's almost gone. Add vegetable broth and bring to a soft boil. Stir in Coastal Cali Fennel Pollen Rub and allow the soup to cook until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and use a blender or immersion blender to puree the soup completely. When blended, add 1/2 cup heavy cream (if using) and stir to incorporate. Add more seasoning or Salt & Pepper Tableside Seasoning as needed.
