Cook Time 30 mins
Course Soup
Servings 6 people


  • Blender
  • Cooking Twine
  • Large Pot


  • Brown 1 tablespoon of European Butter in the bottom of a soup pot.
  • Slice about 5 cups of Leeks - only the white and light green parts. This is about 2–3 large or 4–5 small leeks. Add them to the butter and saute/sweat while you chop the rest of the veggies.
  • As well as 5 cups sweet potatoes. This is about about 3 small potatoes. And about 3 cups zucchini which is 2 small. Try to chop the zucchini and potatoes about all the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Once the onions are soft and moist looking you can add the rest.
  • Tie all of the leek tops together as tight as you can and stick them in the pot to boil with the rest.
  • Pour in 8 cups chicken broth and add kosher salt pepper to taste, 2 teaspoons turmeric and 2 teaspoons cumin.
  • Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes. Zuchini will look wilted.
  • Blend and then add more spices to your taste.
  • Toast up some pine nuts for garnish.
