Celery and Leek Soup

Celery and Leek Soup - Nostimo Kitchen

Whats in the farm in Detroit? Not a whole lot! I spoke to the farmer at a small organic farm in Clarkston, Michigan today and he confirms that we are a few weeks away from the homegrown Michigan asparagus. So instead of a dairy-free asparagus soup, I decided to recreate my famous celery leek soup. This soup is light, vegan and easy to make, not to mention if you do not add the coconut milk or heavy cream it is about 80 calories a serving and low in carbs!
