There is nothing better than curling up with a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day to warm your soul.

What better way to make a soup then to throw all of the ingredients in a pot, simmer for an hour, and then blend it. That’s the great thing about cream soups, they are easy to make, and the amount of preparation is minimal.

Potatoes and leeks are amazing ingredients on their own but add them together, and you will create an amazing dish. Serve this home made Irish Soda Bread for dipping in the soup, and your family won’t know what hit them!
