AH-MAZING Apple Sweet Potato Ginger Leek Soup!

I had an extra pickup from our CSA this week at Waldingfiled Farms.  I LOVE when it’s been an amazing bountiful year  for them as we have an opportunity to buy a share extension. Look at all this yumminess!


I can’t wait to roast that pumpkin and all that squash, and those are cabbage leaves beneath the delicata squash. (I LOVE squash!) My head is SPINNING with recipes!

I wanted to put together a quick supper with some of this bounty, so I made my own version of Apple Sweet Potato Ginger Leek Soup!  (there are a lot of versions out there,  I just over time have made it my own). This whole soup came together in about an hour with chopping time.

How yummy does this look?  It taste 1000 times better!   Freezes well, also for later!
