Soup. Around this time of the year, my body just shuts down for everything but soup. I am literally craving soup ALL. THE. TIME.

Soup has a special place in my heart. Want to know why?

  • It cooks slowly on the stove without much meddling.
  • It spreads a beautiful scent in my entire home. When someone walks into my house after soup has been cooking, they’ll demand a bowl of whatever it is.
  • It is hearty and goes down easy. So even if I’m feeling under the weather and don’t feel like eating anything, I don’t usually turn down a bowl of soup.

This broccoli leek soup with potatoes is a bowl I would never turn down. It is seriously so delicious and flavorful, and not to mention, it’s a great way to get in more greens. Even if you don’t like broccoli, you’ll probably still really like this soup.

Easy Peasy Way To Make This

  • Broccoli, leeks, and potatoes are cooked over the stove with garlic and chicken stock (the vegetables are added at different times, you can read that down in the instructions below).
  • You’ll puree your soup in a blender. For a chunkier consistency, only puree half of what you have in the pot. For a smooth, creamy soup, blend/puree it all.
  • Once blended, slowly add in your half and half and top with parmesan.

So, that’s it! This deliciously flavored, and beautifully textured soup is a must-have during the winter! Enjoy!
