A creamy and protein packed take on this traditional and well-loved soup. This vegan leek potato soup is an easy to prepare dish featuring the nutrition of white beans. Serve with fresh parsley, a handful of spinach or chopped kale and freshly cracked black pepper.
Wash the potatoes and leeks well (see notes) to remove any grit and dirt. Set aside.
Leeks are grown in somewhat gritty well draining soil. As such, it's a good idea to wash the leeks in a sieve after chopping them to make sure all the grit is removed.
When prepping the leeks, you want to use only the white and light green parts; the darker green leaves are to woody and not appetizing. Compost the tops!
Make sure you also scrub the potatoes well to remove any dirt or grit.
