This surprisingly creamy potato leek soup is the perfect way to warm the body and the soul on a rainy day.
The only “rule” to prepare this delicious and healthy soup is to use fresh and organically grown ingredients.
Enjoy hot, with a sprinkle of ground black pepper and a dash of heavy cream on top.
