1 tsp pink sea salt

Instructions

Into a large pot, over medium heat add your olive oil and cook for 30 seconds.  To the pot, add your leeks, onion and celery. Cook them for 5-10 minutes or until golden.

To the pot, add your potatoes and stir the ingredients till well combined. Cook for another 10 minutes, on medium heat. Now add the salt, pepper, white miso and nutritional yeast.  Cook down for 2 minutes, stirring to combine all the ingredients.

Increase your heat to high, add your stock and bring to a boil before simmering for 15-20 minutes or until your potatoes are cooked throughout.

Blend till smooth but still light texture.
