Cream of Leek Soup

Cream of leek soup I hear you say? But surely leek and potato is the king of soups? I thought like you until today, the day I put some veggies in the cooking pot and this recipe came out. This is a wonderfully, comforting, fluffy, cloud-like soup that transcends soup as we know it and sits atop a new soup throne as soup of soups. Champion of soups. The ultimate soup.

This is a great alternative to leek and potato if you’re trying to reduce carbs and as a stand-alone soup it shines!
