Vegan Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots
Whether you add the carrots or don’t (they do add a nice pop of color), you just can’t beat this type of soup, especially on a cold and rainy day like the one we’re having here today.
These are the days are I just want to stay in, light a fire, and lounge around in my thick, fuzzy socks, watching Christmas movies.
And when thinking of what to make for dinner, soup just makes sense.
Ingredients for Vegan Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots:
- potatoes – whatever kind you have on hand will work fine
