Gluten Free Potato Leek Soup
I am always SO sad to see summer, and sandal wearing season, come to an end.
But Fall is the start of soup season, and there is nothing quite like a fresh pot of home-made soup simmering on the stove. Talk about comfort food. It's cozy, warm, hearty, filling the house with a yummy aroma... and if you are making it yourself then you know it's gluten free.
I am a big fan of Potato Leek soup and made a large pot last year after setting up the shots for my Simply Gluten Free assignment from March/April 2013. Truth be told, I had never made my own potato leek soup until I was faced with a large pile of chopped leeks. But it was really quite easy! We were experimenting with a dairy free diet for my daughter at the time so I found a recipe that didn't call for cream. Instead it is whipped in our magic bullet creating a very creamy texture without the milk or cream. (be sure that any beef or chicken stock you use is gluten free)
It was a tremendous success - and the batch went fast! Now as we move into cooler, and yes sadly shorter, days... it's time to break out the soup pot and start chopping leeks!
