Purple Potato and Leek Soup




I saw these beautiful purple sweet potatoes in Whole Foods the other day grown right here in North Carolina so got a couple. The amazing color comes from the antioxidant anthocyanin I decided to make a potato and leek soup, its one of my favorite soups and its so easy to make. It was a lovely soup and just look at the color, but it tasted like beet root!

Ingredients:
2 big leeks
3 purple sweet potatoes, chopped into very thin slices
4 cloves of garlic
one liter of vegetable or chicken stock
Italian herbs

Method:
1. saute leeks and garlic for 3 minutes in olive oil
2. then add the sliced potato and some Italian herbs
3. add the stock, and simmer for 20 minutes

Its that simple and yummy



Has anyone ever seen these before and cooked them?
