Creamy Potato Leek Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lorraine

The idea for the recipe came from a soup I had at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. It is easy to prepare, but tastes gourmet!

This ranks among my very favourite soups!! I made a bunch of it and froze it in 1- and 2-serving portions. To cut down on the sodium content, I used salt substitute instead of salt, and I used homemade chicken stock (almost sodium-free) instead of store-bought cans.
