It’s a fairly plain leek soup with a lot of herbs so we got flavour, and we got flavour, and then some more flavour. This was also my first time making a Bouquet Garni for stock. The stock is a basic mirepoix and chicken. The creamy base comes from puréed sweet potato so I guess you could say I’m going back to my French roots… heeeeeeeeh. (Cause it’s a root vegetable) Pay attention; there may be a point in your life where you have to make leek soup to get yourself out of a horrible situation or something, idfk I just don’t wanna write this for nothing. Stock 2 lbs chicken bones 1 skin of leek 2 sprigs fresh rosemary 2 sprigs fresh parsley 1 bay leaf 4-5 whole peppercorns 2 carrots, loosely chopped 2 celery sticks, loosely chopped 1 yellow cooking onion 4L water Soup 1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed 1 leek, quartered and thinly sliced 1 tsp salt 1 yellow cooking onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves Instructions Preheat oven to 375 and roast your bones for 45 minutes. In a large stock pot, add carrots, celery, onion and roasted chicken bones. Use the leek skin as a shell to wrap your rosemary, parsley, bay leaf and peppercorns, tie with twine and place in stock pot. Pour 4L of water over bones and mirepoix and set to a low simmer for 3-4 hours, covered. On a large baking sheet, evenly spread out cubed sweet potato, onion and garlic cloves and bake for 45 minutes. Remove bones from stock pot and drain stock with a thin mesh strainer. Using a food processor or emersion blender, puree roasted onion, sweet potato and garlic with broth. In a small sauce pot, puree leek with a bit of oil and salt. Add leek to soup mixture and bring to heat. Season well. Bone app the teeth! Served with a Paleo Bun from my friends at Food in the Nud.
