Leek Soup with baked Potatoes
2 votes

Winter is coming and winter time is also soup time! We have already begun this year a little earlier and the weather is also not the best. We love soups, okay, actually we love almost every meal, whether in liquid or solid form

The soup is not too liquid, because of the baked potatoes. Also you could change the consistency easily with the amount of potatoes the way you like it. Since we like to eat potatoes, we buy always big potatoes – if it’s possible – they are easy to peel, ways better and faster than small ones

Leek is often found in our basket, so we mostly have all the needed ingredients for the leek soup with baked potatoes at home – we love to cook something spontaneously.

So let’s get on with the recipe! First of all we do the baked potatoes, they need about 25 minutes. While baking we will prepare the leek soup, so it will be in time.
