Clockwise from top-left: Leek and Potato Soup, Cantalope and Apples with Gourmet Peanut Butter (Peanut Butter, Raisins and Cinnamon)

The soup was pretty darn good (recipe below). The fruit was yummy as well. I really missed my vegan meals even if “eating out” was more convenient.


LEEK and POTATO SOUP
5 Potatoes, sliced or diced
5 leeks, trimmed, cleaned, then thinly sliced
Salt, Pepper, Celery Salt, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Maggi…to taste4–6 tbsp. whipping cream
2–3 tbsp. minced fresh parsley or chives

Optional

1. Put potatoes, leeks, salt to taste, and 10 cups of water in a large saucepan over medium heat and simmer, partially covered, until vegetables are tender, 40–50 minutes.

 2. Mash vegetables in the soup with a fork, pass the soup through a food mill or blend small amounts at a time.  (I blended the soup.) 

Correct seasonings if necessary.

 3. Off heat, just before serving, stir in the cream by spoonfuls (if using). Pour soup into a tureen or soup bowls and decorate with the herbs. Add a little freshly ground white pepper, if you like.  

Serves 4-6
