Week 3: Potato Leek Soup

A cup of soup next to a platter of leeks and some bread.
Potato and leek soup is popular in many European countries, especially during the winter. This creamy soup can be topped with chives, sour cream, or even bacon. Our recipe uses a crockpot but you could certainly make it in a pressure cooker or even on the stove.
