CREAMY POTATO LEEK SOUP
The creamiest plant-based potato leek soup to rule the world! Well, maybe not the world, but it certainly rules my taste buds! Made with coconut milk, this soup is creamy and dairy-free at the same time. This vegan recipe makes enough for dinner and leftovers to enjoy later. Did you know that leeks are part of the Alliaceae family of bulbous plants, along with onion, garlic, shallots, etc.? However, unlike its fellow family members, leeks do not form bulbs underground. Fun fact, huh?
