Leek & Potato (& Vegetable) Soup
Yep, it's winter and I've been seeing some super soup postings:
Soup is definitely a great lunch for me when the jeans are feeling snug. Soup is a meal that is easy to make, easy to make low-cal, full of vitamins and fiber, and I love the meal-in-one-bowl thing (perfect for a pack lunch).
I, alas, have one added reason that soup is especially good right now. It requires minimal chewing. I shan't burden you with my dental reality, but soup really is good food.
This soup was super simple and completely delicious. Leeks, potatoes, carrots, red lentils and peas in vegetable broth. I cooked the leeks in a little butter along with olive oil. Can you believe I made a soup that doesn't have either dino kale or olives?
This soup was very comforting. And leeks being associated with Wales, a sliver of tangy Tintern cheese on top, really was quite superb.
Vegan? Just leave out the cheese and butter.
