Healthy comfort food is the best comfort food because it’s completely guilt free! This soup has so many good things in it. From the mushrooms (which Dr. Fuhrman says are anti-cancerous) to the dark green spinach, there is a lot of nutrition. The flavor is unbelievably good and of course very comforting.
Remember to keep your ingredients organic for optimum nutrition!
Potato Leek Soup
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 large leeks, sliced
- 2 cups chopped spinach
- 15-20 large mushrooms, sliced
- 5 large potatoes, cubed
- 8 oz. cooked bacon
- 2 tsp. minced onion
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 2 cups cream
- Real Salt and pepper to taste
Cook bacon and set aside. Add butter to bacon drippings and sauté onions and garlic until golden brown. Add leeks and spinach. We like to chop our spinach fine in a food processor. Stir to mix well. Slice mushrooms and add to pan. Crumple bacon and combine all ingredients except cream in a large soup pan. Add only enough water to cover ingredients. Cook until potatoes are tender. Add cream and continue heating until warm.
