    1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat then add the onion, leeks and carrot. Stir to coat in the oil then cover and let the leeks sweat until they're soft; about 5 minutes.
    2. Add the cauliflower and stir. Turn heat to high and add the wine then let it boil for a minute or two.
    3. Add the potato, thyme and chicken stock. Bring to the boil then cover and let simmer on a low heat until the potato is soft.
    4. Puree the soup with a hand blender, or transfer to a blender to puree in batches. Return to the saucepan and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add more stock if a thinner consistency is desired.
