Cold is coming
So, I've admittedly been firing up the oven despite the warm weather.
The leaves were falling, and the squash were ripe, so who can blame me?
But soon enough the weather will shift and we will actually be craving cold-season foods.
One recipe that I like to make a least once during the late fall is a potato leek soup. There is something about the potato that transforms a soup into a satisfying, hearty affair.
Leek is a nice, mellow allium, but the real star of the dish is the potato, which has the power of thickening up the soup and giving it a nice mouthfeel.
It seems like potatoes have taken over lately, being featured in a soup that is a play on the loaded baked potato, and taking the vegan culinary world by storm in a variety of creamy soup dishes.
As if adding creaminess wasn't enough, you can also add potatoes to your soup in gnocchi form.
Enjoy any of the above while wearing your favourite sweater and snuggling up to your favourite human, pet or pillow.
