Leek, Bacon and Mushroom Stew (Dairy and Gluten Free)

Bacon is one of those foods we Canadians do love.  I do recommend that you read your bacon labels.  Pre-packaged bacon can contain a lot of preservatives and additives that make it not so desirable for your body.  Bacon is however what makes this recipe is extremely delicious, addictive and filling.  I do suggest you eat it will some raw vegetables on the side, as it is such a heavy meal.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Ingredients (serves 4-6)
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 chopped and washed leeks (white and light green parts only)
  • 6 strips of chopped bacon
  • 3 large portabella mushrooms
  • 2 cups chicken broth (vegetable broth and even just water may work)

  1. Soak cashews in 1 cup water for at least 5 minutes and then puree until smooth.
  2. In a large pot heat bacon, leeks and mushrooms on medium to low heat and sauté until leeks are soft (3-5 minutes.)
  3. Add puréed cashews and chicken broth.
  4. Simmer for another 10-15 minutes.
