Plant-based Basque-style vegetable soup (Porrusalda-inspired) // A grandchild in my kitchen
🌱🥦🍲🇪🇸 Grandma Sita learns with Gorka how to make delicious Basque-style vegetable soup made mainly from leeks, it also contains potatoes, onion, and carrots. This easy plant-based recipe is inspired by the popular Porrusalda which is commonly eaten in Basque Country, Northern Spain.
😋 This dish is a very filling, healthy stew and, as such, should be served hot and on a soup plate, something that is particularly welcome during this season.
🧓🏻💚 Grandma Sita’s tip: You can even make porrusalda with pumpkin (especially when it is in season), but don’t let that put anyone off, because the pumpkin can also be substituted by carrots.
➡️ Porrusalda is a tasty dish that originates from the cuisine of the Basque Country, Navarre, and the Rioja. Its name comes from Basque and means “broth with leeks” in honor of its main ingredient. As for the recipe, everyone makes it to their taste, with more or less broth and with different ingredients.
🤗🌎 Grandma Sita looks forward to the weekends because that’s the time she invites a grandchild into her kitchen to cook popular dishes from their countries and together get inspired to twist them into delicious new plant-based meals. Sustainability tastes great everywhere!
