Equipment

  • 1 Food Processor If you don't have a food processor a blender or hand blender will work as well.

Ingredients

  • 2 Leeks Chopped. use just the white part
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes Peeled and Diced
  • 6 cups Vegetable broth Warm
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tbsp Parsley

Instructions

  • In a large pot, heat coconut oil over medium heat.

  • Add the sweet potatoes and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  • Pour in the warm vegetable broth and adjust seasoning if needed. Bring to a boil (I suggest to increase the heat to medium-high otherwise it will take a long time to boil).
  • Once it boils, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Pour the soup in a food processor and blend until desired consistency. You can also use a hand blender.
  • Optional: add the almond milk and mix well for a smoother texture.
