A vegetable that belongs to the onion family, leek has a strong and distinct flavour that lends itself well to the preparation of recipes like soups.

In this Leek and Potato Soup, the leek delivers a rush of revitalizing flavour, while the potatoes and milk together give it a creamy consistency and a pleasantness that balances the strong taste of leek beautifully.

Serve this soup hot and fresh as the presence of potatoes tends to thicken the consistency after a while. A garnish of parsley is the perfect touch to raise this soup to a high level of excellence, so don’t forget it!
