  • 2 Tbls Ghee
  • 3 Leeks sliced
  • 2 Stalks Celery Diced
  • 3 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • 4 Russet Potatoes Peeled & Cubed
  • 3 Cups Broth I use Bonafide Provisions
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk Plain, Unsweetened
  • 1.5 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Pepper Flakes
  • 4 Strips Bacon
  • 3 Tbls Chives



  • Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp, then crumble and set aside
  • Heat a large soup pot over medium/low heat and add ghee
  • Add in the leeks and celery and cook until tender and translucent, stir occasionally to keep from burning or sticking to the bottom of the pot
  • Add in garlic and cook an additional minute while stirring
  • Add in the potatoes and broth, bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes are very tender
  • Turn off the heat, add in salt, pepper and pepper flakes
  • Use an immersion blender to puree the soup in the pot or blend in batches
  • Stir in almond milk one 1/2 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached
  • Serve with crumbled bacon and chives

Instant Pot

  • Cut up bacon and turn IP to saute mode. Cook the bacon until crisp and use slotted spoon to remove and set aside. (if there is a lot of fat remaining, use spoon to remove some)
  • Keep Instant Pot on saute mode and add in the ghee. Let the ghee melt and then add in the leeks, celery, and garlic. Let saute for 2-3 minutes
  • Add in the potatoes, broth, 1/2 cup almond milk, and seasonings and then seal the lid and steam valve. Hit the manual pressure button and time it for 5 minutes
  • When done, release the steam and then use immersion blender to puree the soup or blend in a blender (leave room for steam to escape) add remaining 1/2 cup of almond milk if desired and top with cooked crispy bacon and chives
