Potato leek soup with chanterelle mushrooms

One day we barely had any veggies in the refrigerator (imagine that?!). I could only find two stalks of leeks and some potatoes in the pantry. Since Jenny was sick, I decided to go for a hearty soup for her but instead of making it heavy with cream, I made it with skim almond milk and finished it with a dollop of vegan butter to still bring a creamy consistency to it.



– 2 stalks of leeks, chopped
– 2 medium potatoes, boiled, chopped and peeled
– 2 garlic cloves, chopped
– 1t thyme, fresh
– 1T mushrooms, chopped
– 1C white wine
– 2C vegetable broth
– 2C milk
– pinch of nutmeg [rml_read_more]
– 1T cold vegan butter
– 1/2 C chanterelle mushrooms (I use dehydrated ones and reconstitute them just before use)



Saute the leeks in a non-non-stick(!) pan using a small amount of vegetable oil till the leeks start to brown. Add the chopped mushrooms and saute for a few minutes  Add garlic and within 30 seconds, add the wine and deglaze the pan. If you are using dehydrated mushrooms, add the liquid left from the dehydration process as well as the broth/stock. Reduce the mixture volume to nearly half of the original and let the mixture start to cool. Using an immersion blender, puree the contents. Add the almond milk slowly to the puree and mix well using a whisk. At this point I add a pinch of fresh nutmeg (optional). Just before serving, swirl in the cold vegan butter and serve with the chanterelle mushrooms.

My condition was progressively deteriorating over the past 2 years. I’d been good at taking my medicine and exercising so knew I should have felt better. My arthritis and scleroderma were really affecting my quality of life. Increasing pain and fatigue were wearing me down.

Dr. Jenny and Ajoy came well-recommended so I got in touch. I completed a short questionnaire before my consultation. Covid meant it was all done over VC. They put me at ease, and it was like we were in the same room. They asked all the right medical and lifestyle questions without judgement. They devised a plan which was holistic, realistic and easy to follow. Their gentle and knowledgeable coaching kept me on track.

The resulting decrease in swelling and pain has given me a new lease of life in a few weeks. I feel so much better and look so much happier. I felt they were genuinely interested in my well-being. Happy to highly recommend them.
