The Potato Leek Soup (warm) on the Williams Sonoma website is one of my Mom’s favourites. I made it the other day when our fridge was sparse and we had a hankering for something warm and soothing. I skipped the cream so it was Darren friendly, omitted the fennel because it would have meant a trip to the store, and I substituted spinach for the watercress since it was in season. We used our homemade vegetable soup stock, as always, since we had a nice big batch of it in jars in the freezer.
I love when soup is this easy. Essentially cut, boil, then run through the blender.
I’ve never had this soup chilled but my two favourite cold soups are gazpacho (who knew?) and strawberry (so decadent). Have you ever had a cold soup? Which are your favouritess? Do you ever eat them warm?
