Bountiful Sweet Potato, Leek & Carrot Soup

Yield: 8 servings

Bountiful Sweet Potato, Leek & Carrot Soup


  • 3 small to medium Leeks
  • 4 Carrots
  • ½ Onion
  • 4 Celery Stalks
  • 3 medium Sweet Potatoes, peeled
  • 2 quarts Chicken Stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried Thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon White Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Salt


  1. Chop Leeks and add them to a large bowl full of cold water. Once they are all in, swish them around a little to get the sand out. Then, remove the leeks from the water and place in a strainer. If you pour the leeks and water in to the strainer, you're going to pour all that sand on top, so just grab them out a handful at a time.
  2. Remove Leeks from the water bath and add to a large stock pot.
  3. Chop carrots, onion, celery, and sweet potatoes, and add to the pot.
  4. Add the chicken stock and spices.
  5. Cook for about 20-30 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are cooked.
