Vegan Carrot & Leek Soup

It’s still cold here (damn!), so the warm soups are still on the list.  As I mentioned before, I started a new cleanse, read the post here, and their website has really great recipes.  Although, the directions and ingredient list did not always pair up.  No worries, though, because that’s where I could improvise.  This soup is so easy and quick!  You can literally make this in under 10 minutes and it’s fantastic!  My kids kept eating mine! This is all you need:DSC_0403

First you sauté the leeks and garlic in coconut oil for about 3-4 minutes until slightly soft.  DSC_0411

Then add carrots…DSC_0415 

Saute for another 3-4 minutes, again, until slightly soft.  Add the mixture to your blender (or Vitamix!), add vegetable broth and blend until smooth.  Top with your favorite pesto.  In my case, I love this mixture sold in my local Mom’s store by Heba’s Health Foods.  I may even try to replicate this soon! ;) DSC_0418
