We love good soups and to combine sweet potatoes and leeks is definitely a marriage made in heaven. This soup is thick, rich and hardy and good hot or cold.

    filtered water

    yams, peeled and chopped into large cubes.

How to Make Yam & Leek Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute the onions with the palm oil in a large sauce pan or soup pot over medium heat for a few minutes. Stir frequently to prevent the onions from browning or burning, just soften them.
  2. Add the apple, garlic and leeks to the pan and saute for approximately 5 minutes to allow everything to get soft.
  3. Sprinkle in the cumin, nutmeg and sage and stir in well.
  4. Add the water and yams. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes until the yams are soft.
  5. Remove the soup from the heat and slowly mix in the coconut milk and give it a good stir. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Puree the soup right in the pot with a stick blender, it's so easy to do it this way. Serve in a bowl and sprinkle a little parsley on top to garnish.
  7. Serve either hot or cold. I like it both ways. It's good the next day since it gives the seasonings a chance to permeate through the soup.
  8. Enjoy!
