Easy Healthy Potato Leek Soup Recipe

Potato Leek Soup - The Most Comforting and Satisfying Soup We Know

Potato Leek Soup

This easy, healthy and delicious vegan potato soup recipe is the ultimate comfort food of vegetarian soups - best served hot, in our oh-so-humble opinion! How thick you make it though, is strictly up to you.

You can serve potato leek soup cold and call it Vichysoisse, but we've never been keen on cold soups with fancy names.
