sweet potato and leek soup

I wanted to make something simple and hearty, so I opted to make the onion and leek soup posted by vegan_knitting. I decided to try using sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes, and I also halved the recipe (roughly).


I used Zatoun fair trade olive oil, (a Christmas present) and here are the other ingredients on another Christmas present, a cutting board made by my uncle. It's his business, these days. He sells them at places like the recent One Of A Kind fair in Toronto. I think it looks really nice.





I served it with an Ace olive bun, with a generous amount of Earth Balance.

I've never heard of 'fair trade' olive oil before...which country does the olive oil come from?

The bottle says "Product of Palestine," so I guess it all depends on your politics.

Ok, it's friday. Who's got a recipe suggestion? Maybe new year themed?

p.s., I'll be in NYC at some point next week. Any (reasonably priced) vegan restaurants I should check out?

I hadn't heard of fair trade olive oil either. But I guess picking olives could be hard work out there in the sun and up on a ladder.
