Temps have dropped in TX, making hot teas and soups a regular menu item in my household (along with fuzzy booties and blankets). In keeping with my traditional “easy breezy” meals, I have crafted a delicious anti-oxidant filled soup perfect for a starter, side, or its own stand alone meal.
Here’s what I used:
1 box Imagine’s Creamy Potato Leek Soup
1/2 yellow onion
2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
3 leeks (cleaned thoroughly and roughly chopped)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Warm the soup base in a large stove top pot or crockpot. Chop the garlic, leeks, and onion. Add everything together and bring to a medium boil for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Turn heat to low, and let the flavors blend together for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve immediately or freeze for later. Salt and pepper to taste. Optional toppers could also include bacon crumbles (yum), chives, and/or cheese.
Leeks are a phenomenal source of nutrients, vitamins, and cancer fighting agents. If you’re curious about what specific nutritional benefits leeks bring to your diet, check out the following sites:
