Potato leek soup is definitely a fall favorite. A lot of recipes have you blend all the ingredients to a fine pulp.

This not only gets rid of the chunky potatoes I like in my soup but created a sink full of dishes. This recipe does not use a blender or food processor.


Here is a great chunky potato leek soup recipe.

Step 1: Ingredients
