Hearty Potato Leek Soup

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Do you have too many potatoes sitting on your counter ? Tired of roasted potatoes? How about a hearty soup to warm up with on cold winter days. Potato leek soup is a fan favorite in our house. I have been making this soup for a long time, about 27 years. Whenever I smell the soup simmering, my mind goes back to a special memory. My Bubbie was sitting at our kitchen table and writing the recipe down for me as I created it at the stove. I remember my oldest was sitting in her high chair and Bubbie was playing games to entertain her so I could cook. I can see her so vividly smiling and playing with Shira, even after all of these year. This soup never fails to warm me , both body and soul. I still have the recipe card in my Bubbie's handwriting. I hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much as the Wolf family does!
