A hearty, creamy potato leek soup

Ready for another soup? Here’s a super simple, classic potato leek soup. It’s another one of my seasonal favourites and so cheap to make! Using minimal ingredients this soup still manages to pack a punch of flavour.

If you don’t have russet potatoes, feel free to substitute them for a different variety. You also don’t have to add the cream. I feel it nicely compliments the soup and ties everything together, but it’s definitely not necessary. This soup can definitely stand as it’s own meal, but the soup and sandwich combo is one of my favourite meals.
