Leek and Sweet Potato Soup

This savory veggie soup is so simple and yet so satisfying! Sometimes there is just nothing better in the world than a chunky vegetable soup with a light clear broth. It just feels so nourishing and restoring!  I definitely need to make this more often 🙂 In this recipe I used the kind of sweet potatoes that are white on the inside and out. These are delicious if you can find them! Otherwise, you favorite potato of choice will be just fine. Yukon Golds would be my second choice in this recipe. Leeks make for such a soothing broth base, and are full of nutritional properties as well. Eat this and be nourished!
You need:

Thyme, 1 sprig

Bay leaf 1

Garlic 4 cloves

Leek 1 large, washed and cut 

Black Pepper, dash

Ginger, dash

3-4 cups water

1 medium/large potato, chopped into 1/2-1in cubes

2 broccoli stems chopped

3 stalks celery, chopped

2 carrots, coined

Fresh parsely, sprig chopped

3 oz Mushrooms, halved 

I simply threw all these ingredients in my Instant pot, and put on the soup mode for 15min! Alternatively, combine all on the stovetop and simmer, until vegetables reach desired level of tenderness. Serve with salad or bread, or just on its own in a huge bowl :D. Some chick peas or barley would also be great in this soup, and some avocado garnish would be awesome too. ENJOY!
