This winter has been uncharacteristically warm as far as East Tennessee winters go. We have only had one snow, and it didn’t last but a couple days. The temperatures have hovered around 40-50°F instead of the teens we’re used to in January and February. To me, that’s still about 25 degrees too cold though.


I’m looking forward to springtime, things turning green as they come back to life and birds chirping again. We still have a good month or so until we’re out of the (winter) woods, though, and in the meantime, I’ll be indoors in my sweatpants and fuzzy socks eating this soup.

This Dairy-Free and Whole30 Potato Leek Soup will knock your fuzzy winter socks off. Really. If you don’t like spicy foods at all, cut the white pepper in half and add it back at the end after you’ve done a taste test to make sure.

If you do like a little spice in your life, this Dairy-Free and Whole30 Potato Leek Soup is the perfect winter pick-you-up. It looks so smooth and creamy and innocent, but then you taste it and there’s an explosion in your mouth fit for a July 4th party. (So maybe I exaggerate a little, but it’s truly flavorful with a delightfully spicy kick.) The leeks add extra depth of flavor, and white pepper is deceptively complex too.

If you don’t have any white pepper on hand, I would recommend picking some up before making this recipe. It’s not just about keeping the color of the soup. White pepper is made from fully ripened peppercorns which are fermented and peeled before being dried. It has a floral, earthy flavor.

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. In a Dutch oven, warm olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Cook onion and leeks until softened and onion begins to turn translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and cook 1 more minute.
  4. Add potatoes, chicken broth, salt and pepper. (Use less salt if your chicken broth is not lower sodium.)
  5. Bring everything to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes, or until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork.
  7. Remove Dutch oven from the stove, and blend everything with an immersion blender. (If you want to keep some of the potatoes in tact, you can put 1/3 of them aside and then add back after blending. I chose not to.)
  8. Place back on the stove, add the coconut milk and cook until heated through again. Add more coconut milk if necessary to reach your desired consistency.
  9. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Top with chopped bacon and chives.

    One of my favorite dishes to make! So creamy and flavorful. Makes me feel like I am eating away any possible sickness with all the onions and garlic. It reminds me so much of my grandma’s potato soup growing up, but is whole 30 compliant. I have made it almost a dozen times.
