1. First, you need to soften the macadamia nuts by adding them to a glass or a jar and covering with water.

2. Soak the nuts for 30 minutes, then rinse with fresh water.

3. On a low heat, sauté the olive oil, leeks, garlic, thyme and bay leaves in a large pan for about 4 minutes.

4. Add in the cauliflower and broccoli cooking and stirring for another 4 minutes before adding in the stock, bringing to a boil.

5. Reduce heat, add in the coconut milk and macadamias and lightly simmer for 15 minutes. Season.

6. Whilst soup is simmering, start making the croutons.

7. Add some oil to a pan, along with the bread and thyme and fry until brown and crispy.

8. Blend the soup together until smoother, adding more vegetable stock if needed.

9. Serve with croutons and sesame seeds.
