Elim Choko & Potato Soup GF DF Low

*Stock recipe page 37 of the RPAH Elimination Diet Handbook

Makes ~6 cups

You will require a food processor to liquefy the ingredients to make soup


  • 2 cups premade elimination diet vegetable stock*
  • 2 chokos
  • 3 large potatoes
  • ½ leek
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Salt to taste
  • Allowed cooking oil
  • Parsley or chives to garnish


  • Peel the chokos under running water and cut into chunks for steaming
  • Peel the potato and likewise cut into chunks for steaming
  • Place potatoes over the steaming basket in a saucepan, put the choko on top, salt and then steam until a knife passes easily through both vegetables
  • (you could boil or microwave the vegetables until soft)
  • Meanwhile dice the leek and fry it with the garlic and oil in a fry pan until it becomes translucent and slightly browned. Stir occasionally.
  • Allow everything to cool slightly before processing
  • In batches add some of the leek, garlic, choko and potato to a food processor with ~1/3 of the pre-made stock and blend until it becomes a liquid. Repeat with the remaining ingredients until they are all blended
  • Add salt to taste
  • Add more stock if you wish to have a runnier soup and don’t add all of the stock if you wish to have a thicker soup
  • Serve with your choice of gluten free bread or crackers


Larger chunks of potato and choko take longer to steam but they retain more nutrients.
