Potato Leek Soup

On a cold winter day, there's nothing better than a hot bowl of soup to warm you up! Potato leek soup is one of those simple recipes that still feels so hearty and luxurious. This soup recipe feels light because its cooked potatoes make its texture so fluffy, while its leeks and onions round out its grounding flavour. It's made with minimal ingredients to keep things simple, because sometimes less really is more.

As I already mentioned the main ingredients to this recipe are potatoes and leeks, both winter-friendly vegetables that you may have sitting in your cold cellar right now. Leeks are a beautiful vegetable however, they can be tricky to prepare as they like to hide dirt and sand between their layers. Be sure to wash them well because of this. Start by cutting off and composting their root ends and thick dark green parts. Cut the leeks in half lengthwise and rinse each half under cold water, pulling apart the layers to remove any grit that may be stuck inside. After that, it's smooth sailing. This recipe takes barely any prep time, but a longer cook time to extract those nutritious flavours and ensure your potatoes are soft as a cloud.
