Potato Leek Soup Recipe

I love soup season! In fact, in my house it’s soup season year round—in the summer I just eat my soups cold. In the winter and early spring I like them warm and comforting. This Potato Leek Soup is perfect for March, especially around St. Patrick’s Day! This delicious recipe is satisfying without being too heavy, makin git perfect for lunch. I just love the way the oniony leeks impart a delicate and tantalizing flavor that you’ll crave.
