Slow Cooker Paleo Potato Leek Soup

 

I absolutely love this simple, creamy, and comforting Paleo Potato Leek Soup.  It only requires a few ingredients and omits all gluten and dairy, and you don’t need to add much salt so you don’t need to feel guilty after eating three bowls like I did.  You can leave it chunkier or keep it smooth, as my family likes it.  Totally easy and delicious for lunch or dinner, or both, and makes great left overs.

Ingredients:


3 large white sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 tbs avocado oil

1 shallot, chopped

3 leeks, washed and chopped (only white and light green parts)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

3-4 thyme sprigs

1 bay leaf

6 cups vegetable broth

chopped green onion for serving

Directions:

  1. Add white sweet potatoes to slow cooker.
  2. Add oil to medium pan over medium-high heat.  Add shallots and leeks, and cook until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add onion mixture to slow cooker.

 

3.Add salt, pepper, thyme, and bay leaf to slow cooker. Pour in broth.

4.Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.  Uncover and blend to desired consistency using a blender or immersion blender right in the pot. Top with fresh chopped green onion.
