So easy and really delicious, the addition of coconut oil makes it almost buttery and round in flavor. You could totally puree this and make it like a traditional Potato Leek soup but I love the chunks, especially with the broccoli florets floating around. 🙂
Potato Leek & Broccoli Soup
3 large russet or 6 gold potatoes, peeled & medium dice
1 small onion, medium dice
4 leeks, trimmed, rinsed and sliced (discard the thick tough green tops)
1 small head broccoli, trimmed and cut
1/4t black pepper
1 vegetable bouillon cube (or 1T veggie broth powder)
2T extra virgin olive oil
1T coconut oil
1t smoked chipotle powder
6c boiling water
1t smoked salt or to taste
Bring 6c of water to a boil, in case you need more.
In a large soup pot, add the olive oil and sauté the onions with the turmeric and salt until golden and soft. Add the leeks and sauté until the leeks turn bright green and have wilted. Add the potatoes, coconut oil, chipotle, and black pepper. Mix well and add the boiling water, and the bouillon cube (or powder). Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for 30-40 minutes.
The leeks should be super soft, almost disintegrated.
Add in the broccoli in the last 10 minutes of cooking, and cook only until the broccoli is bright green and tender.
Adjust the seasonings before serving. Serve with bread or add GF pasta or grains of your choosing.
