From the author, Toni Okamoto: I have so many tasty veggies from my garden at work, so I decided to make a hearty, comforting, vegetable-packed soup. You can pretty much throw whatever veggies you have in and puree them. This recipe makes a HUGE batch, so if you don’t want a lot you can cut it in half. I like to freeze extras, though.
From Plant-Based on a Budget: We have another amazing and comforting soup recipe to share with you! This Veggie-packed Potato Leek Soup is full of veggies, packed with flavor and deliciousness. Are you ready to add a perfect weekday meal to your repertoire? Let’s see how to prepare this rainy must-have!
Leeks have always been around but never truly considered for some reason. Probably because we don’t truly know how to cook them and to which preparations to add them, but they are not only delicious but packed with fantastic qualities.
From the onion family, leeks are long and green and full of layers. They have a milder and sweeter taste than onions, and the best part is they become nice and creamy when cooked (and this is what makes them so special and perfect for soups!). They also contain a particularly mighty component called kaempferol, which is a super-powerful antioxidant that can help prevent heart disease and certain types of cancer. They also have the same antimicrobial characteristics as garlic.
If you haven’t included leeks as part of your weekly diet, we encourage you to!
How To Make Any Soup Creamy
If you’re team creamy soup (or creamy chunky soup!), then we have an amazing tip for you. Once everything is cooked to the desired consistency, you can use an immersion blender to puree half of it (or two thirds if you like it even creamier!). This means you don’t need to use any thickening agents or plant-based creams. Pretty amazing, right? This trick is the key secret to our favorite corn chowder!
