Slow Cooker Monday, this week in FAIL

Cream of Leek and Potato soup

I wanted to make something that could be made for meatless Monday or could be made Vegan.

I decided to make Julia Child’s recipe.

I made a few small changes. Instead of water I used homemade veggie stock, I used little potatoes instead of large russets and I did not peel them & I used half & half instead of heavy cream and sour cream.

  • I cooked the soup in my slow cooker on High for 5 hours
  • I used my immersion blender to make the soup creamy
  • The soup was perfectly creamy without the milk products added to it. *Stop here for Vegan*
  • I added the half & half to the soup and allowed it to cook on low for 1 more hour.

The soup was not entirely successful. Two of us liked it, two of us hated it so much that we only ate salad for dinner.

Hopefully Allie has a more than 50% successful post for us today.

  1. It certainly LOOKS pretty! I have a feeling I’d be in that “likes it” half–especially since there’s a vegan option, yay! (I also love that we both made winter-esque recipes this week πŸ˜€ )

    • I agree. Great minds think alike. πŸ™‚

      The vegan option, just for you!!

  2. Ugh, I hate when things look good, but don’t taste good.

  3. Looks and sounds good though, what a shame, but hey..this is real life and itΒ΄s great that you share both the highs and lows πŸ˜‰

  4. We’ve all had a #fail and we’ll have them again. It does look pretty.
