Do you ever have those days where all you can think about eating is a certain kind of soup? I don’t, but John certainly does. A menacing craving for potato & leek soup suddenly took hold of him yesterday, but as we ate breakfast late (almost lunchtime) and had to go to my sisters house for dinner just a few hours after that, we didn’t have time – or the stomach capacity – to make it. However, we bought the ingredients ready to make today, to satisfy his soup craving and shut him up.
(I know John reads this so HI, I’m totally kidding & I love you almost as much as you love this soup!)
This potato & leek soup is deliciously creamy, and so perfect to serve with thick slabs of vienna bread – and it makes so much! The serving shown in the pics was enough to fill me up, and we have so much leftover. Hello weekday lunches.
I will admit this soup takes a little bit of time to prepare & cook, but as soon as you smell the leeks frying with the butter, you know it’s gonna be so worth it! I actually don’t have enough recipes with leeks in them (in fact, this may be the first, even though it’s a real winner) so I think I’m going to have to make that one of my cooking priorities! …After Blogmas, of course.
Which kind of soup is your favourite?
