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.
