“For years I have craved sugary foods, but didn’t know why. When I saw the local community center was offering a program on Stressed Out Bodies; Cravings, What Are These About I was intrigued to learn more. Michelle Sanderbeck's presentation helped me to understand why my body was craving certain foods and how to give my body the food and nutrients it needs so that I won’t crave the foods that I know that are not good for my health.” Andrew S.

Potato Leek Soup

Monday, November 13, 2017

There is only one word to describe this soup—comfort. It’s thick, creamy, and bursting with flavor. Leeks are often underutilized in the kitchen, but they’re a phenomenal source of vitamins and antioxidants, not to mention quite delicious.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 leeks, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 russet potatoes, cubed
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 (14-ounce) can white beans
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Sauté leaks in oil over medium-high heat for about five minutes, until softened.

Add garlic and potatoes and sauté two more minutes.

Add broth, beans, and spices.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and puree mixture in a blender. If soup is too thick, add water until desired consistency is reached.

Add salt and pepper, to taste.
