Potatoes are a great base for a rich soup which goes well with other flavours such as bacon, chicken, cheese, leek and cream as shown in these recipes.
This soup can be made even better with the addition of crumbled bacon.
Thick, warm and comforting, this leek and potato soup is a snap to make - but if you need more hints, watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Leek and Potato Soup Video.
It's the best potato and leek soup I've ever had. A modification of a recipe I first tried at my dear friend Sonja's house.
Leeks give this soup a delicious fresh flavour and also add fibre.
You can vary this recipe by using leeks instead of onions or cream instead of milk. Or try adding fresh herbs.
