Vegan Cream of Leek and Sweet Potato Soup

December 21, 2021

What is better than a warm bowl of soup on a cold winter evening? This Sweet potato and leek soup of course!

Did you know that leeks act as an anti-inflammatory, help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels and contains an impressive concentration of vitamin K (click to read more about vitamin K).  This vegetable is part of the same family as onions and garlic but its taste is a bit milder. Great for soup and sautés, it is worth including it more to our day-to-day cooking.

For this recipe, I combined the leeks with sweet potatoes to give it a thicker/creamier texture.
Super easy
are just a few words to describe this delicious soup.
