Potato Pea Cream soup

Potato Pea Cream soup

 

I love tasting and trying new soups. However many I’ve made and eaten, I’m always ready for more. There’s something so nutritious and hearty about them – eating soup makes me feel warm all around.

This combination of leek, potatoes, and peas (and then some) is just heaven. It’s thick and creamy (and can be watered down if you don’t like it too heavy), and oh so flavorful!
