Preparation

  • In a thick-bottom sauce pan, caramelize leeks, onion and celery over low heat in olive oil for 10 to 15 minutes and stir from time to time.

Chef's notes

Caramelizing vegetables at low heat brings out lots of flavor and makes it possible to leave out chicken broth. And so, the amount of sodium is greatly reduced. This classic soup is an easy and effective way of adding vegetables and fibers to your menu. This recipe suits vegetarians and is lactose free, soya free and gluten free. (Use dried chervil that is certified gluten free).
