Apple Leek Soup

Recipes Overview

Apple Leek Soup – A soup made from apples? Yes I know, that sounds strange. But in fact it is a delicious, creamy soup. The fresh leek gives it some bite. Tip: Set aside some slices of leek and apple to use for decorating.
By the way, I didn’t peel my apples. After all, most of the vitamins are right under the skin. I recommend, however, to take apples without wax layer. Of course, organic apples would be best and in any case wash them well.

I used the FVR Zeitlos Chef’s Knife for cutting the ingredients.

Apple leek soup originally comes from Franconia, an area in Germany. But in general there are some German recipes that combine apple and leek. Leek is known to do very well in creamy soups, the apple in this case gives a sweet and sour flavor.
