One of my favorite things about winter is soup. When it’s cold outside, nothing warms me up more.
I love making a big pot and having it on hand – pairing with sandwiches, using it to dip food in.
On the menu from the weekend was a homemade Leek & Potato Soup:
Leek & Potato Soup
- 2-3 leeks, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 large or 2-3 small potatoes, chopped
- chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 bay leaf
Heat a medium sized pot over medium low heat. Add a bit of olive or coconut oil. Saute the leeks and garlic for about 5 minutes until they start to brown. Add the potatoes and enough broth to cover. Simmer for 45 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
Blend everything in a blender (lid on, but cap removed to let steam release – cover with a towel to prevent it from spilling). Pour back into the pot.
I served mine with some turkey bacon and shredded cheese. Perfect!
What’s your favorite soup?
