Potato, Leek & Cabbage Soup

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by CandCrew

A perfect soup for a cold autumn or winter evening. It's savory, filling & easy on the pocketbook. Don't let the cabbage scare you away. It gives this soup texture and just a hint of flavor.

This is different from any soup I've ever had. I chose to use bacon. Admittedly, I ended up not having any bay leaves to add. I felt like a little something was missing so maybe that was it. Different and nice way of having cabbage.
