Paired with an Amber Ale
It’s been officially soup season at my house since the first snow fell. Don’t get me wrong, Zach and I literally eat soup all year round. I don’t get sick of it, but the amount of soup consumed definitely increases this time of year. There are so many reasons I am obsessed with soup. It’s so comforting. The feeling you get from eating a bowl of soup can’t be matched in my opinion. Most of all however, the reason I am so obsessed with soup is how creative you can get them. From creamy to brothy and from veggie-loaded to a hearty chili, the sky’s the limit when it comes to making soup.
This potato leek tahini soup is one of my most recent favorites. I love potato leek soup, but let’s be honest, potato leek soup has been done a million and one times. I decided to smash the flavors would get in a traditional hummus with the flavors you would get in a traditional potato leek soup. The tahini and garbanzo beans really make this soup shine, and I’m loving how comforting this soup came out.
Beer I found this soup very difficult to pair with. I didn’t want anything too hoppy, like a pale ale or an IPA. In fact, I really wanted something lighter and maltier. This isn’t a style of beer I usually gravitate towards. It’s rare that I order an amber ale at a brewery, but sometimes amber ales pair really well with food. In this case, an amber ale worked perfectly.
