Potato Leek Soup With Cabbage

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Erin KG

This soup is a delicious but healthy comfort food for a cold winter day! Fairly simple to prepare, it is great for a weeknight dinner, or to keep in the fridge for lunch. I haven't tried freezing it, but it keeps several days in the fridge. It does thicken up, especially as it chills, so for a thinner soup, increase the broth by another cup or so.

My leeks were HUGE, so I only used two, but this worked out fine with the rest of the ingredients. I adore potato and leek soup and the addition of cabbage made a nice change. This was hearty and comforting.
