This soup will seriously be one of the best you will ever eat! My family absolutely loved it…at first they weren’t sure about the leeks, but it turned out amazing! Full of healthy goodness and it can be made dairy free if needed.
I placed it in the blender to cream it, but you can use an immersion blender if you have one…we also have an exciting kitchen giveaway happening right now over on our instagram page, where you can win some awesome kitchen tools, including a Vitamix blender, a Kitchen Aide mixer and more or you have the option to take the $1400 cash instead….check it out here as it ends tomorrow!!!
Happy Friday! XXO
