This delicious + nutritious leek sweet potato soup will make you feel all the feels.
It is coooooold outside. Like seriously cold. Therefore, we have made a decision : we want to eat as many nutritious and comforting meals as possible allll Winter long. This goes without saying but we plan on sharing each and every one with you.

We feel that leeks are really having a moment – in our home anyway. We have all kinds of ideas that we are planning to try this month and leeks are the star of many of our ideas. Sweet potatoes have been a longtime favorite. We never thought to eat them together until we made this soup yesterday and I’m so glad we did. They are really the ideal flavor combination. Make this at home and see for yourselves!
This soup is creamy, packed with flavor, comforting, healthy and cosy. It is a perfect, warm Winter dinner or a healthy lunch option. We had it for dinner last night and I ate it again for lunch today in between writing articles.
