Gluten Free UAE

Hoping to be of help to all those living gluten free in the United Arab Emirates – نأمل أن نكون عوناً لكل من يعيش حياته خالية من الجلوتين في دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة

Curried Leek & Potato Soup

400g waxy potatoes
2 cloves garlic
3 leeks
2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp curry powder
100ml cream
salt and pepper
1 tbs lemon juice
basil leaves, to garnish

Peel potatoes and cut into pieces. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Wash and trim the leeks and cut into pieces. Heat the oil and sweat the garlic and leeks. Dust with curry powder and stir in the stock. Add the potatoes and cream and simmer over a medium heat until potatoes are soft. Season with salt and pepper and add the lemon juice and nutmeg to taste. Serve scattered with basil leaves.

I tried to serve this one with Tibetan bread that we discovered while hiking among the teahouses outside of Chisapani near Kathmandu…didn’t work out so great. The bread, that is. We’ll leave that to the locals.
