I’ve always thought that the rain doesn’t belong to LA, kind of strange and romantic at the same time. A delicious leek potato soup is the perfect way to warm the soul on a rainy day.
The secret of this simple and healthy recipe is to use fresh and organically grown ingredients.
Enjoy hot, with a generous grinding of black pepper.
