Easiest Potato Leek Soup Ever!

My mother-in-law Atsuko makes the yummiest, easiest Potato Leek soup ever. All her grand kids love it. Its called “Cold Potato Soup” – though my kids like it warmed. Either way, this is a really hearty, healthy soup that is so so easy to make. It even freezes beautifully!

  • Wash the leeks, scallions and potatoes well, chop into cubes and place in a large pot.
