I recently published my new favorite recipe – Oyster Mushroom Soup Recipecheck it out hereHere is one that I also love, the Leek and Potato soup:

Leek and Potato Soup

 Ingredients
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 large leeks, rinsed well and chopped (white and green parts)
  • 2 cups spinach or other leafy greens, for deeper green color (optional)
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 potatoes (about 2 lbs. total), peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk or cashew cream (or substitute with vegetable stock/water)
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme (about 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh thyme) or 1 tsp. dried
  • fresh ground pepper and salt (if using) to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat a large, non-stick pot over medium heat. Add onions, leeks and garlic, and sauté in 2-3 tablespoons water or broth on medium-low heat for 5-7 minutes, until onions are translucent.
  2. Keep the heat low enough that the garlic doesn’t brown; you just want everything to sweat. Cover the pot to prevent the liquids from evaporating, and stir frequently to time to keep vegetables from sticking to the bottom and burning.
  3. Add potatoes, thyme and pepper, and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook until potatoes are very tender, about 20 minutes. Purée soup with a hand-held blender or, working in batches, transfer to a standing blender to puree.
  4. Add non-dairy milk or cashew cream and gently heat, but do not boil. Season to taste. Serve hot. Makes about 6-8 servings.

Variations:

  • Leeks are essential to this soup; there is no replacement for them in this recipe. You can add a little onion, too, but leeks, potatoes, and stock are basically all you need.
  • The leek and potato soup is usually pale in color, so for more vibrant color, I like to add two cups of fresh spinach leaves or one cup of frozen spinach to the soup.
  • You may blend the soup until very smooth, or leave it slightly chunky.
  • I love using cashew cream in my soups. They make soups super creamy, without the added cholesterol. To make cashew cream, blend a handful of raw cashews with a cup of water in a high speed blender until very smooth, and add to the soup.
  • The soup can be poured into containers and frozen.

  • Mostly Gluten Free – The majority of these recipes are gluten free and the few that have pasta or flour you can either omit or switch for a gluten free brown rice pasta or gluten free ingredient of choice.
  • Mostly Soy Free– Some people are allergic to soy or choose to avoid it. Some recipes that use soy also provide easy ways to substitute with other ingredients.
  • Low In Sodium – Did your doctor tell you to reduce salt in your food to help bring that blood pressure down? I teach you techniques to reduce the amount of salt in your food without compromising on the taste. You can also omit the salt completely or just sprinkle a little bit of salt in your soup at the table.
