Leek Potato Soup with Smokey Tofu

Leek Potato Soup with Smoky Tofu Strips

When it comes to typical winter veges, I would call leek one of my favourites. It has a very nice flavour that makes it quite versatile.

And since it is winter here in New Zealand, I make more soups than ever 😉

With the smokey fried tofu strips on top it makes for a very healthy and warming dish. Yum! :)

If you want to fire things up a bit, add a little chilli. That adds an extra health kick too.

Mix the soy sauce with the liquid smoke in a small container.

When the potatoes are softer, take them from the stove and mash them roughly.

Place the pot on the stove again. Bring to boil and then add the leek. Let boil for a few minutes until the leek is softer but still green and bright. Add salt and pepper to taste. Also add the ground nutmeg.

The tofu should be ready now. Switch of the heat and pour the soy sauce mixture over the tofu, stirring it vigorously.
