Leek and Sweet Potato Soup is a yummy soup using bone broth. It is easy to make. Leeks are in the onion family, but are milder. They are one of my favorite vegetables.
In order to keep grit out of your meal, you have to wash leeks well. They contain many layers and grow in sandy soil, so they often have sand trapped between the layers. To prepare them for cooking, slice off the end and the tips then cut the leek in half length-wise. Slice each length into thin half-moons and place into a large bowl of water. Swish the leeks through a few changes of water until you see no more sand, then drain them and proceed with your recipe.
I like to serve a cup of soup to each family member prior to dinner to help get a daily dose of stock into them. This is the best strategy for nights where I am not making a meal that is heavy with bone broth.
