Leek and Garlic Soup with Coconut Oil

Leek and Garlic Soup with Coconut Oil
Leek and Garlic Soup with Coconut Oil

Here’s the perfect sick-day meal, chock full of ingredients that will help boost the immune system and soothe a sore throat. We’ve purposefully kept this recipe light and easy to digest—and easy to prepare just in case you have to cook for yourself when you’re under the weather. Soup is the universal comfort food, but it’s not necessarily something you’d think of putting coconut oil in. The inclusion of coconut oil in this recipe adds a rich, creamy texture to the broth and an extra punch of micro-nutrients to help you feel better faster.

NotesLeeks sometimes contain a great deal of dirt and silt between the leaves. Place chopped leaks into a large bowl of cold water, and agitate them vigorously, checking for dirt as you work. Allow the leaks to soak in the water for a few minutes. The leaks will float and the silt will sink to the bottom of the bowl. Scoop clean leaks off the top with a slotted spoon. Dry well before adding to the hot oil.

Serves4 People

Cooking Time35 min

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons Unrefined Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 6 medium sized leeks (washed* and chopped into ¾-inch rounds)
  • 3 medium sized carrots (peeled and chopped coarsely)
  • 2 medium sized Yukon gold potatoes (peeled and chopped into approximately one-inch cubes)
  • 3 stalks celery (chopped coarsely)
  • 3 large cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 pinch red pepper flake (more or less to taste)
  1. Melt Unrefined Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in stock pot on medium heat. Add all the vegetables and seasonings except for bay leaf and parsley. Cook over medium heat for about five minutes until leeks soften. Add the bay leaf and enough water to cover all the vegetables by at least one inch. Cover the pot and simmer on medium-low heat for about 30 minutes. Check occasionally, adding more water if needed. Use large spoon to break up large bits of potato and incorporate them into the broth. Remove from heat, stir in the parsley and enjoy.
