Leek and potato soup with rainbow chard 🥣 (vegan)

Leek and potato soup with rainbow chard 🥣 (vegan)

Hi folks,

Here's a soup that I made yesterday with leeks, onion and potatoes and topped with rainbow chard. I used home made stock and coconut milk, so it's suitable for vegans.

This is a really simple soup as you just cook leek, onion and potato (I cook mine in their skin) blended with a little salt and black pepper and coconut milk. Tonight I topped with rainbow chard cut into little pieces and gently fried for 5 mins in olive oil. Its a complete meal in a bowl and very easy to make.

I love soup this time of year 😊

Potato soup is a favorite of mine. Never had leeks in the soup before, so I will have to try it this way soon! Thank you, Jerry for the idea.

Looks amazing. My stepdad made a very nice potato and leek soup, even as a child I couldn’t get enough.

The rainbow chard on top gives it that bit extra. Nice one! x

The burgers needed more flavour but as I have said to Zest I used Portobello Mushrooms and not Chestnut ones and that would have made a difference to the flavour. I will use herbs next times as I love the flavour of herbs.

Don't worry about that Jerry, I'll tag you next time. Chestnut Mushrooms have a lovely flavour.

I'll have a look at using the Portobello Mushrooms for a pizza base, a very good idea.
