Make and/or eat some thing inspired by a book or film.

Day seven of Vegan MoFo and it is the delightful Bridget Jones Diary inspired, Blue Leek and Potato Soup.

The Diary of Bridget Jones is one of my favourite books and movies. I love how imperfect she is. If you want a good laugh, then this is the movie for you.

Now, of course you do not have to turn the soup blue……I did , just for fun with a couple of drops of blue food colouring. Poor Bridget had the misfortune of using blue string to tie up the leek in her soup which gave her the blue version.

This soup is delicious in either colour.

(Blue) Leek and Potato Soup

Serves 4 – 6

  • 2 Tblspns olive oil
  • 5 medium potato’s peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 leeks, trimmed, thoroughly washed and sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 Tblspn lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • finely chopped green onions for garnish if wanted.

Sauté the potato’s, leeks and garlic in the olive oil until vegetables start to soften a little and brown. Add the vegetable stock and simmer covered for 30 mins until the vegetables are soft.

Blend with an immersion blender until smooth. (or you can wait until the soup cools a little then place in small batches in a blender and process. Be Very Careful that the soup is not too hot or it could explode out of the top of the blender and cause serious burns).

Add coconut milk, lemon juice and stir to combine.,

Add salt to taste.

Sprinkle each bowl with green onions if desired.

  1. Great pick for this MoFo prompt! 🙂 I love the colour, but it’s strange to look at this and try and imagine the potato & leek flavour.
