Ok, I admit, I may tend to bang on a bit about soup (ok, ok, and pretty much all things in general) but c'mon, soups are soooo righteous. It just so happens that last night Kods and I had a bowl of my latest creation as an app before dinner. So fancy are we. All joking aside though, it filled us up and we didn't snack at all after dinner, which was a first in a long time. Easy Sweet Potato and Leek Soup 3 lbs sweet potato peeled & quartered 1 large leek chopped 2 liters of organic veg stock 2 tbsp ginger minced 5 cloves of garlic minced 1/2 cup hemp hearts dab of coconut oil Himalayan salt & pepper to taste In a large pot saute leek with coconut oil and garlic for 5 mins. Add stock and sweet potato and bring to boil, then simmer for 45 mins. In batches add soup to blender and add ginger, hemp hearts and salt & pepper, if needed. Yields: Enough for the week. P.s. Oh yeah and for those of you with little ones, just add some organic baby cereal to a little bowl of it and you've got their meal covered too.
