If you’ve never used leeks before — or even if you have — one of the first preparations you’ll find for them is “Potato Leek Soup”. This is apparently a classic comfort food, because there are already several autoimmune protocol adaptations using anything from rutabaga to cauliflower in lieu of potatoes. Rather than attempt to reinvent it in my usual way — using sweet potato or taro root — I am sharing my adaptation of one my absolute favorite recipe from Autoimmune-Paleo making use of celeriac. The addition of ginger adds great depth to this creamy, almost cheesy-tasting comfort food. Garnish with crumbled bacon, fresh parsley, or chives if you like.
Looking for more easy AIP recipes?
I know diet change can feel overwhelming. I started the autoimmune protocol at a time when only four other people were writing about it, and over the years, I’ve striven to give you the resources I wish I’d had when I got started. Not just recipes, but ways to implement them. My first ebook 28 Days of AIP is a meal plan that will help you get going (or get back on the wagon) with as little fuss as possible. With a variety of simple, delicious recipes, plenty of leftovers so you don’t spend all your free time in the kitchen, and shopping lists ready to go, all you have to do is follow the plan, then sit down and enjoy your meal!
