Soup and Study

Potatoes have been taking over my kitchen! I've gotten them every week for the past four or five weeks from the CSA, and I finally put about a third of them to good use in this soup loosely adapted from PUREmama blog.

Potato Leek Soup
3 leeks, sliced
6 medium sized potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 cup almond/cashew milk
2 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon sea salt
Dried thyme, parsley, and salt to taste
  • Boil potatoes till soft, about 20 minutes. Heat oil and water in large saucepan and add leeks, garlic, and 1 teaspoon salt. Saute/steam until soft, about 15 minutes or until your potatoes are done cooking.
  • Add almond/cashew milk and dried herbs to the leeks and simmer a little longer. Meanwhile, drain potatoes and roughly chop them up. Add them back into saucepan along with leek mixture. Add the water and blend with hand mixer.
Simple, easy to prepare, and delicious! Goes well with a yummy salad!

It goes even better with this Isaiah study I've been doing. My friend Kelly told me about Precept Upon Precept Bible studies a long time ago, and I've really been dying to do the Isaiah one ever since. Well, one day not long ago, a delivery man showed up with the complete Isaiah set - Kelly had sent it to me as a way to bless us with our baby on the way! I seriously couldn't have asked for a better gift, and I'm so thankful for all the generosity and love friends and family have showed us during this special time. This study by far and away the best one I've ever done. If you're looking for an in-depth, Scripture-based study, I can't recommend Precept Upon Precept studies enough! Has anyone else ever done one? What's your favorite method for studying the Bible? I would love to hear what everyone else is doing!
