6 tbsp olive oil
2 leeks, white part chopped
2 garlic cloves
6 c vegetable or chicken stock

Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with florets. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp olive, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread out on baking sheet and place in oven.

Sprinkle with remaining olive oil, salt and pepper. Add to oven and allow to cook until they are crispy. Ladle soup into a bowl and top with kale chips and toasted pine nuts.
