So since last time around I was just playing and having fun (the soup was awesome, and I enjoyed cups of it for the next few days, but it was composed, and not the most minimalist version of itself) I decided to focus on two things: getting a somewhat thicker consistency, and going for simple.
If you can chop vegetables, and have a soy milk maker, you can make this soup, and it is fabulous.
What I did:
Chop up two medium leeks1
Chop 6 smallish yellow finn potatoes2
Okay, really, I chopped up the leeks, and then I added potatoes until the chopped veggies filled the soy milk maker more or less to the water line.
Pour a generous amount of olive oil over the whole thing (1-2 T?)
Fill with water to the higher water line. Put on the cover/grinder piece, and start on the porridge setting.
When it beeps, add salt and lemon to taste, and garnish with fresh herbs if you're feeling fancy. (I add salt and lemon right before I eat it, not to the quantity, the rest of which is now in my refrigerator. Except I think I need a second bowl. Ah, bliss.)
1 Usually after I remove the rooty bits on the bottoms and the tough upper leaves, I'll cut them open lengthwise to see if any dirt has gotten inside, and then wash them further if needed.
2 I didn't remove the skins. Flavor and vitamins, I say! Also, laziness!
